Comment (by Offereins):

 Boone - Thanks for your fast reply and feedback. Too bad about the non-
 inclusion for 2.3, but the feature plugin will be available for those who
 need it, untill 2.4.

 Concerning your questions:
 1. I'm not aware of any WP/BP Core policy on internally applied filters.
 It may also be hardcoded into the function logic before the filter, as is
 done with visibility levels. I guess using a hook would at least either
 count for both the metabox and the filter or for none.
 2. Missed that one. Will create an additional checkbox as you suggest.
 3. Checking all items by default seems a little off for me. It has
 consequences for a) obligatory storing of field meta for all available
 member types on field creation, and b) new member type registration, which
 leads to confusing scenarios (do all fields immediately apply for the new
 member type?). Perhaps the gloss may seem to be a necessity.
 4. Valid point. Will come up with alternatives, but perhaps others within
 the community may also offer their suggestions.
