Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 I think we have two options:

 * Use `bp_core_can_edit_settings()` instead of `false` for the
 `show_for_displayed_user` setting. This brings it up to par with
 Notifications, Settings, etc...
 * Set Notifications and Settings to `false` so no one, not even super-
 admins, can see the menu items. Note that visibility does not dictate
 availability, and capable super-admins can still visit those pages.
 * Bigger picture, we could introduce a "moderation mode" for members that
 would override these settings. I'm imagining an experience where no user
 can ever edit any other user until they've re-authenticated with a
 password, and that super-ability is maybe time-limited or tied to a
 specific piece of session data.
