Comment (by imath):

 Tell me if i understand well, just like WordPress have a Post Type / Post
 formats API, you suggest to have an Activity API that mimic how WordPress

 bp_register_activity_type( 'reviews', array(
    'labels' => array( 'front_end' => __( 'Reviews' ), 'back_end' => __(
 'posted a review' ) ),
    'supports' => array( 'activity_comments', 'activity_favorites',
 'activity_mentions' ),
    'activity_format' => 'mini',
    'post_type_object' => 'products',
    'action_format_callback' => 'plugin_prefix_format_reviews_action',
 ) );

 and have something to output the activity using different templates just
 like post formats ?

 I guess, as boonebgorges said this would use existing functions. I can see
 an interest if someone want to inject some activity posting/fetching
 feature on a specific single page or post. Like a product page. I also
 think this is something that would need some shortcodes / UI... So
 potentially a long road :)

 Using existing filters and actions i think you might almost be able to
 begin this API from a plugin and maybe ask for some core modifications
 when you're stuck, what do you think ?
