Comment (by imath):

 Ok so the plan is to create a new template for the `has_cover_image`
 header and edit the parent template `home.php`, this way premium/custom
 themes will be able to have time to make sure the feature is looking good
 into their themes before editing `home.php` and adding the new template.

 Then @mercime is right, we need to think about existing plugins, themes
 having a cover photo feature. Even if adding new options is a bit
 annoying, these do have an interest if not activated by default with an
 explanation to explain why it's not activated by default.

 On the other hand, when we add a new feature it's activated by default...
 To be honest i'm hesitating with another possibility: use and make the
 avatar options more generic 'allow user uploads / allow user uploads for
 groups' and use `bp_is_active( 'component', 'feature' )`.
