Comment (by boonebgorges):

 I agree that it's annoying to fix the '-2' problem. But this situation
 should almost never arise for normal users.

 The situtation I'm looking to avoid is one where an existing WP website
 has pages with page slugs 'groups', 'members', etc. These pages would have
 regular page content, indexed by Google, etc. They decide to install
 BuddyPress, and all of a sudden their content at 'groups' etc disappears
 from the front end of the site. Of course, we haven't deleted anything,
 but it still results in a confusing experience, and a poor first
 impression of BP.

 We are dealing with the choice between two fairly unpleasant experiences,
 though each is definitely an edge case. My feeling is that someone who is
 deleting the 'bp-pages' key from the database in order to "reinstall"
 BuddyPress is going to be better prepared for a jarring experience than
 the new user who has his content hijacked.
