Very much behind this, but I will mention that changing those two things are the first thing I’ve done with my BP installs (along with other stuff I mentioned in the article I did for the I-guess-it’s-not-coming-back bp-tricks.org). Agree that an install routine that forces the user to customize their slugs (explaining possibly consequences if they don’t) would be a great idea.
