 This looks great. If you are ready to commit after looking at my feedback,
 go for it.

 I like it!

 > Advanced level nit-picking ;)

 1) In `xprofile_sync_wp_profile_on_single_field_set()`, if the fields
 don't match, return early. Then outside the braces, on the next line, then
 call `xprofile_sync_wp_profile()`. Why? Indenting units of code can be
 seen as increasing their complexity. This is a measure static analysis
 tools rank on, but (for really large functions) I also think it makes it
 more readable, as we keep the intended code at the base level of
 indentation, and use the indentation to mark the "edge case".

 if ( bp_xprofile_fullname_field_id() !== $data->field_id ) {

 xprofile_sync_wp_profile( $data->user_id );

 2. `"// Nicename and login were not passed."` I know this comment pre-
 exists but does it add value in its new location? Is it not obvious, given
 the proximity to the start of the function, that these are optional
 variables? When I read it, it does seem redundant, but if you think
 otherwise, by all means keep it.
