Comment (by stevenkword):

 It looks like I may have left out the single most important detail!  I am
 trying to leverage BuddyPress components for an application service I am
 building.  However, I have no interest in the native blog functionality
 that comes with WordPress.  So I am looking at this from the perspective
 of using BP as more of a framework.  Since I am not using the native
 WordPress blog "front-page", this collision is of no concern.  The
 behavior to setting the homepage to a static page in that it eliminates
 the default presentation.

 What I am looking for is a way to define this intention via a global
 variable.  The standard blog functionality would still work aside from the
 front-page. I am proposing that we add a global variable,
 BP_ROOT_PROFILE_DEFAULT , that states whether the root profiles should be
 set to 'blog' or 'bp_default_component'.
