Comment (by InterMike):

 SocialEngine, a paid social networking script does something interesting:
 they have a bunch of special "pre-set" profile questions
 (http://demo.socialengine.net/admin/user/fields), such as "First Name",
 "Last Name", "Gender", "Country", etc. And I think if you only chose to
 have just "First Name", then that'll actually be used as your username
 across the site. But if you choose to include "Last Name" as well, then
 you'll get a username to login with, but your full name will be shown
 across the site - like BuddyPress does.

 Something like that would be good. Seems pretty simple, no?

 Also, for each profile field, you can select options such as: Required?,
 Show on Browse Members Page?, Show on Member Profiles?, Show on Signup
 Page? Something more like this for BP would be great.
