Comment (by sgr33n):

 About this, I'd like to suggest something.

 WordPress profile syncing doesn't seem to work as it should. If you change
 your BuddyPress "name" field, it will reset both WP nickname and
 first_name to what you entered.

 So I would suggest to leave the base profile on WordPress wp_users and
 user_meta table, letting BuddyPress change them. They are "first_name",
 "last_name", "nickname" and "bio".

 This could be the "info" tab. Then, if the Community Admin want to add
 more fields, he could populate the xprofile table in the way BuddyPress
 already do, and choice a name to give the table.

 On this scenario BuddyPress could be more integrated into WordPress.
