Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Thanks for working on this, @Offereins!

 > b) using bp_xprofile_delete_meta() which fires subsequent hooks in

 I'd suggest this. `bp_xprofile_delete_meta( $field_id, 'field' )` (no
 `$meta_key`) calls `delete_metadata()`, which assembles a single `DELETE`
 query for all metadata entries and fires all the hooks appropriately. This
 appears to be what we do with groups, so it'll be consistent.

 > right in BP_XProfile_Field::delete()

 I guess I'd suggest this, since it's what we do with groups and activity.
 If there's good justification for doing it in a hook (like, making it
 unhookable), let's handle it separately, and change all object types over
 at once.
