Comment (by r-a-y):

 Thanks for your work on this!  FWIW, here's the ticket where WP
 implemented their data exporter - #WP43438.

 Can we only load this code when the WP data exporter functionality runs,
 which is on the admin AJAX action?


 add_action( 'wp_ajax_wp_privacy_export_personal_data', function() {
         require SOME_BP_COMPONENT_PATH . '/data-export.php';
 } );
 add_action( 'wp_ajax_wp_privacy_erase_personal_data', function() {
         require SOME_BP_COMPONENT_PATH . '/data-erase.php';
 } );

 I've tested how WordPress does the data export and this functionality is
 restricted to the site admin.  Meaning only the site admin can initialize
 a data export or erase for a user under the "Tools" admin dashboard page.

 For our purposes, would we we want to let users manage their own data
 requests on a new BP frontend page like "Settings > Data"?

 As far as the actual exported data itself, WordPress adds the basic
 profile information, post comments and links to media URLs at the moment.
 Interesting to note that blog posts are not included.
