Comment (by Prometheus Fire):

 I think rework three is a good compromise. One of the things we need to
 remember that whole point of adding CPTs to the activity stream is to
 create a customized internet environment that caters to the niche
 (whatever that niche is).

 @boonebgorges said: "''I... am more concerned with the case where you
 don't like the "posted a new" phrasing. Maybe, in the case of 'ideas', you
 want "x thought up a new idea". I have a feeling that this is going to be
 the type of customizations that site owners want to make.''"

 This is exactly true and is the whole focal point of using CPTs in the
 first place. Efforts on customization through the UX are not wasted and
 add to the value(and I think 3460.png and reworkthree are on the right
 path for it).

 You might consider that to prevent over complicating the whole thing, if
 custom post types are not registered or detected, the interface itself
 does not display. That way, a novice BP site owner, who may not be
 interested in (or even know about) CPTs isn't going to be bothered, but as
 soon as one is registered, the interface appears and provides options.
