Comment (by hnla):

 Yes given the extended discussion and issues/points raised it seems we
 can't in all honesty consider this for 2.2, I feel I want to spend more
 time exploring aspects of it.

 I agree options one and two do not sit well, I'm with imath on option
 three not being a great fan of plugin route, but the proposed 4th option
 is interesting, I like supporting something in bp-functions.php although I
 can see possible contra arguments to this aspect not being handled in

 This process always was to simply find a way to confuse novice non coders
 less, our template hierarchy is great and serves us pretty well but for
 intermediate to advanced levels. We were concerned with user creates  page
 or visits created BP page attempts to select one  of their themes named
 templates - it doesn't work, my site is broken help!.

 The single item  screen is an issue, members set as a page and with the
 template for full width selected in twentytwelve does load the correct
 template both for directory and for single item however we are knocking
 out the body class template tokens in our single screens, which are the
 means to re-factoring styles based on the class 'full-width'.
