Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 A slightly more optimized schema might look something like:

 CREATE TABLE {$bp_prefix}bp_xprofile_fields (
         id bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
         parent_id bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL,
         type varchar(150) NOT NULL,
         name varchar(150) NOT NULL,
         description longtext NOT NULL,
         is_required tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
         is_default tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
         is_signup tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
         order bigint(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
         order_by varchar(15) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
         can_delete tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1',
         KEY parent_id (parent_id),
         KEY order (order),
         KEY is_signup (is_signup),
         KEY is_required (is_required)

 A few other thoughts:
 * We could move visibility out of field meta
 * We could eliminate the `bp_xprofile_groups` table, and have them instead
 be a field type `group`
