User goes to settings under their buddypress profile and changes their email address. Admin is notified of new update similar to 'Password Lost and Changed for user:' in wordpress.

This might make a good request for WP. As of now, WPMU/WPMS is the only version that even sends an email requiring the user to click a link to activate the new email. There are no hooks to make your request super easy, but it could still be done. I would try WP Trac. See if you can get some hooks added to the email confirmation functions, and see about getting email confirmation added to WP Single. BP would likely piggyback on these functions.

Single-site WP doesn't need this. You could easily implement this in a plugin.

I think Nacin's point was that most single-site instances aren't so gargantuan and filled with disconnected users that an admin would would need some notification of a user changing their email address. I have to agree with this. A) A site admin can log in any time and see the address associated with a given user should they need to check it. B) Would 80% of single-site admins need this? Probably not, which is why Nacin said it could be done in a plugin. Agreed, closing as wontfix.
