Comment (by boonebgorges):

 The approach in the patch looks fine to me.

 A little background on the `xprofile` vs `profile` thing. `xprofile` is an
 optional component, and when it's disabled, BuddyPress uses some
 information from the WordPress user profile to fill in stuff like "display
 name". So I think `profile` was chosen as the top-level component name in
 order to account for these cases, so that you could grab something from
 `$bp->profile` without knowing whether xprofile was active. In retrospect,
 it probably doesn't make much sense for xprofile to share a key with WP
 profile info #blamepeatling but here we are. In general, I'd say you
 should be using `xprofile` to refer to things that are dependent on `bp-
 xprofile`, and only use `profile` when you need compatibility with the
 global key (or in certain cases, the activity `component`).
