Comment(by johnjamesjacoby):

 I tend to respectfully disagree. :)

 When creating custom themes for clients, having these buttons all
 hardcoded into BuddyPress makes it impossible to create a proper
 stylesheet to match, or change anchors to buttons, without recreating
 these functions completely. If the buttons were truly customizable via
 some kind of link/button generating API where ID's and classes could be
 passed, that would make more sense to me.

 Great measures went into abstracting a great bit of that code out of
 functions and into the template.

 How would you feel about creating a general use template tag that can be
 passed parameters to check privacy settings against instead? We could
 extend the 'bp_user_has_access' function to be used through-out the
 template to allow/disallow functionality?
