 @slaFFik This is a difficult one in some regards.

 The companion  styles were intended to address BP styles when displayed in
 twenty* themes.

 They weren't intended to address styles that might arise from third party
 plugins or code.

 bbPress sits oddly between being  third party in it's own styles and
 templates and standalone in plugin nature, however being unique in being a
 plugin that is deeply integrated into BP as more of a component.

 The issue is one where bbpress styles conflict with the twentyfifteen
 themes styles rather than with anything buddypress is or isn't doing.

 The dilemma is whether to address these as part of the companion styles
 task, I think we have to to some extent due to the close affiliation and
 display within BP content areas, however having looked at this it's going
 to be a case where it's not correcting styles but having to  go a little
 deeper and address general layout aspects.

 That I think is a separate task, I'll look at what we can do during 2.5
 cycle to improve things but think styling bbPress has to be kept limited.
