 something that doesn't have an intended architecture yet.

 Maybe. We're definitely not at the point of deciding the specifics of the
 UI. However, I think this is a case where coming up with at least the
 sketch of a UI will help us get clear on what problems the feature is
 meant to solve, and that knowledge will drive some of the technical
 infrastructure. (Also, as you've mentioned, at least some of the
 infrastructure is already in place, such as `$bp->activity->actions` and
 related functions.)

 I hope this is a side note about the long term and not a part of the scope
 of this ticket :) I for one am fond of the Blogs component :)

 we need to create a UI for each of the registered actions

 Yes, though just to be clear, we only have "everything we need" for the
 *registered* actions, and the point of this ticket is explicitly for
 actions that *aren't* registered.

 Those who are thinking about UX on this ticket: Could we see some
 additional mockups/wireframes with some of the expanded ideas JJJ raises,
 specifically toggles for existing activity actions? This would probably
 get its own panel. If we can all look at a shared set of mockups, maybe we
 can make a collective decision about how to strategize the short (1.8) and
 medium (1.9?) term goals.
