 I started looking at the theme-compat code this morning so I'm still a
 little green! :)

 > I don't think the extra hook at the end is necessary, as hooks already
 exist to add additional templates in the stack.

 Yeah, I wasn't really sure about the last hook as well.  But, I think the
 first hook - `bp_locate_fallback_template` - is valid as I currently don't
 see a way for 3rd-party plugin devs to use `bp_get_template_part()` in
 their own templates without it failing in `bp_locate_template()`.  Unless
 I'm not looking in the right place?

 > Being able to see the stack of child, parent, theme-compat reads easier
 than using locate_template().

 I don't really mind which way we go here.  If we want to utilize WP code
 as much as possible, then we should use `locate_template()`, however I do
 see your point about having to adapt to WP if they decide to change that
