 This was a design choice made on a separate set of templates (actually, an
 entire theme) called "BP Default" and this effect probably made more sense
 there. When we ported BP Default into the current template set ("BP
 Legacy"), we kept this JS feature intact to avoid an inconsistency during
 that template migration, and it's also the reason why we have to be very
 careful and considered of the consequences when changing the current

 Current sites running BuddyPress may desire this feature, or have other
 code or features in place in their theme to further customise this area,
 and the risk of removing this element today is that we somehow break or
 damage someone's site, which is something we don't want to do. Our general
 approach to things like this is to resist changing BP Legacy, and keep
 what we have for the time being.

 We do appreciate the patch -- thank you @pareshradadiya  -- and sometime
 in 2016 when I expect we will finally be building out a new set of default
 templates for BuddyPress, I would be surprised if this feature made it
 into the new theme. :)
