 Raise WordPress required version to 5.4

 BuddyPress 10.0.0 will require at least WordPress 5.4. The BP Development
 team took this decision on October 6 (2021) according to our
 compatibility/ guideline about WordPress version compatibility].

 - Add WordPress 5.4 to the WordPress versions tested into our PHPUnit
 GitHub action.
 - Deprecate the `bp.apiRequest` script which was introduced to polyfill
 the `wp.apiRequest` one. Plugin developers are encouraged to directly use
 the `wp.apiRequest` script. Please note the `bp.apiRequest` script will be
 completely removed in a next major BuddyPress version.
 - Deprecate the `bp_insert_site_hook()` and `bp_delete_site_hook()`
 function which were introduced to make sure to use the best hook according
 to the installed WordPress version when creating a new site or deleting an
 existing one.

 At least one more commit is required to finish this "raising" process, as
 BP Blocks do not need anymore the `CompatibiltyServerSideRender` component
 we introduced to preserve back compatibility with WordPress version older
 than 5.3.
