I'm about to commit a fix that works as follows. It adds a new function bp_activity_can_comment_reply() which, by default, always returns true. You can filter the output of that function to limit reply depth in the following way:

function test_comment_depth_limit( $can_comment, $comment ) {	
	if ( $comment->mptt_left > 3 )
		$can_comment = false;
	return $can_comment;
add_filter( 'bp_activity_can_comment_reply', 'test_comment_depth_limit', 10, 2 );

$comment->mptt_left refers the number of items to the left of the comment in the comment tree, including the original activity item. So this filter will limit comment depth to two levels (> 3).
