 Regarding the `bp_do_404()`: This block can never be reached, because of
 the `bp_current_user_can( 'bp_moderate' )` checks in
 `BP_Messages_Component::setup_nav()`. Technically, it could be removed
 altogether, will all caps checks handled during nav setup. But swapping
 out for `bp_do_404()` will do no harm.

 I agree that there should not be a redirect in
 `bp_has_messages_threads()`, but simply removing the block could
 potentially introduce security issues when the function is being called
 directly without proper cap checks. I recommend returning false, which is
 to say, `! bp_has_messages_threads()`. See [attachment:6506.02.patch].
