Comment(by johnjamesjacoby):

 Started looking at the patch in more detail, and ended up liking the
 overall solution less and less.

 I'm going to back-port a solution I had started for 1.3 a little earlier
 than I wanted. Spent the greater portion of this weekend getting it fixed
 up for testing. It will introduce a new BP_Button class and template-tags
 to handle the creation of component buttons. The default theme will attach
 these button functions to its do_action handlers in the theme itself. This
 creates a separation between the buttons and the template, and still
 allows the buttons to be filtered/changed/adjusted/tweaked, similar to how
 WordPress handles lists.

 In 1.3 I think a more elegant solution will be to have templates include
 some kind of fields.php file, where commonly used elements and their
 associated HTML are stored.

 Rather large patch due tonight or tomorrow that will need some testing.
