 Guys the current behaviour is hugely problematic for my startup as we are
 trying to build a SAAS solution with shared tables for all components
 except xprofile, but maintaining different buddypress pages on each site.

 WE have achieved this by setting BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG, using the
 buddypress-multi-network plugin, and filtering most tables to be
 "global_tables". However $bp->core table_name is not filtered so some
 functionality simply does not work. eg setting notifications to read
 (using bp_notifications_mark_notification) uses
 $bp->core->table_name_notification in check_access and
 buddypress()->notifications->table_name to actually update the
 notification (and hence does not work).

 if there is a way of overririding this until buddypress 7.0 I´d be
 appreciative if you could let me know.

 In terms of the future I would advocate for a consistent approach that
 does not handle backwards compatability as that would minimise technical
