Comment (by Offereins):

 So apparently the plugin mentioned is recently
 forked twice (!)], providing backwards compatibility for previous users of
 the plugin. This means you can either turn to the
 [https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-xprofile-custom-fields/ Buddypress
 XProfile Custom Field Types Reloaded] by @seventhqueen or to
 [https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-xprofile-custom-field-types/ BuddyPress
 Xprofile Custom Field Types] by @buddydev to continue using these profile
 field types.

 However, the question still remains whether some (or all) of these profile
 field types should be integrated in core, given their (relative)
 popularity among users of the XProfile component. I'd say yes, BuddyPress
 would definitely benefit from providing more profile field types.

 In the context of connecting members with posts or taxonomy terms though,
 I'd like to shamelessly plug my [https://github.com/lmoffereins/bp-
 xprofile-relationship-field BP XProfile Relationship Field] plugin, which
 does this and more. Although it lacks proper support for working with huge
 numbers in dropdowns (select2 vs chosen vs ?), there is additional
 developer logic in place to create custom member-object relationships, for
 example member-member, member-media, etcetera. Perhaps that is also a
 direction BuddyPress can head into when it comes to easing the extension
 of profile fields possibilities.
