#5360: Template hierarchy file names Codex guide?

 The Codex article on the template hierarchy is extremely helpful but what
 to name template files may not be obvious to people unfamiliar with BP.

 For example, if I wanted to create a template file for member's personal
 activity, I wouldn't be using:

 * index-action-activity.php or
 * index-action-personal.php

 I would have to use:

 * index-action-just-me.php

 I might be wrong but you'd have to dig into bp-activity-loader.php to find
 out the slug for this action is 'just-me'.

 I think this is probably one of the less obvious examples because
 members/username/activity/just-me redirects up one level to
 members/username/activity - Also, the label for this action is 'Personal'
 - So users never really see 'just-me'.

 Could a list of all of the core actions be added to the Codex article so
 users know what to name their template files?

 Component names are obvious so are self explanatory.
