Comment (by imath):

 The more i think of it, the more i think this feature is really really
 interesting for 2.4 !

 Again, @Offereins did a great work.

 Maybe i'm overthinking it, but i think the logic used is improvable. What
 the plugin's doing is it waits for the visibility to be set on *all*
 fields before querying again *all* fields to check if some needs to be
 removed because they don't match with the member's member type.

 I think my brain would feel more comfortable (maybe it's working in a
 strange way :) ) if we would reverse the order of the logic. First remove
 the fields that don't match the member types and then for *these remaining
 fields*, check for their visibility.

 More globally the registration thing in my previous comment shows that we
 should also be able to fetch the fields for a given member type *without*
 needing any user id. Ideally there should be a new argument in
 `bp_has_profile()` so it would be possible to use it in specific loops
 such as the registration one. Maybe something like :

 function bp_has_profile( $args = '' ) {

         // Parse arguments
         $r = bp_parse_args( $args, array(
                 'user_id'                => bp_displayed_user_id(),
                 /* other arguments */
                 'member_type'            => bp_get_current_member_type(),
         ), 'has_profile' );

         if ( ! empty( $r['user_id'] ) ) {
                 $r['member_type'] = bp_get_member_type( $r['user_id'] );

 In BP_XProfile_Group::get(), we could remove the fields that are not of
 the requested member types, and then apply the visibility to the remaining
