Comment (by boonebgorges):

 We already have an activity API. Create activity items with
 `bp_activity_add()`, fetch with `bp_activity_get()`, register action
 format callbacks with `bp_activity_set_action()`, etc.

 Are you asking for a more centralized way to handle all these things? Can
 you give some examples of how it could be streamlined? Or are you asking
 for the registration of activity types to be part of component

 >  In a way similar to the profile fields options you build in the admin.

 This suggests that what you're asking for is a UI, not an API. What would
 the UI look like? Having a UI suggests that it would be useful for site
 admins to define custom activity types without looking at code. What are
 some use cases for this?
