Comment (by modemlooper):

 I don't think admins need a UI. Its more like this:

 A component "products" and want to have users post reviews. The reviews
 could be a special Activity Type for that component with its own post-
 form.php (custom fields) and entry.php or a sub template for entry.php.
 Usually we would use something like Gravity Forms to do a front end post
 UI/UX but then you loose all the BP goodness with replies, notifications,
 favs etc.

 So when creating a component it can add an activity stream for you with a
 special Activity Type. Like the directory => true when extending
 BP_Component have Activity => true.

 Special activity types show up in the main site wide feed but on your
 component its just the Activity Type for that component.
