Comment (by r-a-y):

 > Correct me if I missed something, but removing these particular data
 types means we'd need to do remove_filter(
 'wp_register_user_personal_data_exporter', 1 ); to add a specific
 BuddyPress function that redo what is doing
 wp_user_personal_data_exporter() before removing the 2 new data types.
 There's no filter into wp_user_personal_data_exporter() to
 whitelist/blacklist these 2 specific user meta.

 You're correct, imath. It would be cumbersome to override because of a
 lack of filters.

 > Finally I think the right way to handle the Community Events Dashboard
 Widget thing is to disable the widget completely from the dashboard for
 regular users. ;)

 I like this simple solution the most. If other devs like this idea, let's
 do it!
