Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Ah, I see now. Sorry, I misunderstood.

 I guess I can see the use for this kind of field, but I don't think that
 we can implement it quite like you've suggested. A profile field hidden
 from the logged-in member would have to be hidden from the *edit*
 interface as well. And it's possible that we'd want to consider a
 different interface for configuring the field from the admin's point of
 view: the idea of a "default visibility" doesn't make much sense when the
 end user won't be able to see the field at all.

 This is a feature that I think would work well as a plugin for a first
 implementation, so that the user interface can be thought through. If you
 come up with something that integrates nicely with BuddyPress, and proves
 useful to many people, we could consider it for BP core.
