 I've attached a patch with a possible solution. The patch does three

 1) Redirects example.com/members/boone to the default component (generally
 2) Changes bp_core_new_nav_item() so that visitors are redirected to the
 default_subnav_slug when available. Eg, example.com/members/boone/activity
 will redirect to example.com/members/boone/activity/just-me
 3) Fixes the blogs component so that the subnav tab actually works (this
 is currently broken)

 I like this solution because it removes redundant URLs for profiles in a
 way that is non-intrusive and backward compatible. Its biggest downside is
 that the resolved URLs are generally longer and uglier; you will never
 resolve to example.com/members/boone, for instance.
