Comment (by dtc7240):

 Thanks for the description @imath.  Given Boone's comments as well, I
 guess I'm not aware of what "screen notifications" are...that or I'm still
 missing even more.   So let me see if I'm on the right track:

 1. The action of a user saving a reply should populate the
 wp_bp_notifications table with a single entry pertaining to just that
 individual "reply notice".  Right?  That's what the data in the table
 seems to be set up to handle...
 2. When a user navigates to their notifications tab, is that where the
 potential to group together multiple lines from the table comes in?  And
 do we call this "screen notifications"?  The individual entries that I
 actually see listed on my notifications page?
 3. Boone suggested that if a notification were tied to more than one
 response to *multiple top-level activity items*, the anchor link behind
 the notification could just send them to their notifications page.  But
 isn't that where we already are?
 4. IF this is the case, why don't we only "group" notifications together
 that pertain to a single activity thread and just always point to that
 activity permalink?

 I do agree strongly with Boone that this feature is valuable enough to
 come up with a solution in the very near term.  I think that one of the
 most important things that a user of a social network would want to know
 is when someone has responded to something they authored...

 Thanks again for your attention to this,
