Comment (by boonebgorges):

 I'm sympathetic to Ron's point. Changing the terminology on the Dashboard
 of WP is one thing - a fairly small percentage of the audience of the
 average WP site ever looks at the Dashboard, and those who do are
 generally in a good position to understand the change, as they are often
 the site admin. Changing the terminology on the front end of BP should be
 handled more delicately, because it will affect every single person who
 uses a (MS) BP installation.

 In light of the potential level of impact, I'm uneasy about telling admins
 of every existing site to create a language pack just for this issue. I
 wonder if this might be a special enough case where we provide an admin-
 level switch (either in the UI or in the form of a filter that can be
 activated in bp-custom.php) for maintaining the language of 'blogs' vs
 'sites'. New installs would default to 'sites', while older ones would
 optionally be able to maintain 'blogs'. Over time this could maybe be
 phased out. Just a thought.
