Buddypress would be helped tremendously by three things:

  1. Call in current or specified Wordpress/MU theme header and footer.
  2. Restyle CSS to stretch to any reasonable width (800 -> unlimited?)
  3. Reclass and style elements to be self-contained.

In other words, a BP theme could be created that dropped fluidly into whatever current Wordpress theme is being employed. This will require different CSS techniques. Primarily, the BP CSS should not set any global resets and generic tags. Instead, everything should be referenced within the BP container:

<div id="bp-container">

#bp-container .... {}

I suppose percentage-level font sizes and such should not be used, as they may be inherited by different theme environments.

Either way, anything closer to this goal would be a good thing-- right now it is a prohibitively arduous task to get BP looking like whatever central WPMU theme one is using. It makes sense that something so intimately tied with a OSS package would integrate more smoothly.

The themeing situation has much improved with BP 1.1/trunk. It pretty much does what you've requested.
