Does D see the full past membership as ABCD? Is the view of past participants grown through direct observation, or is the list of participants shared along with other metadata?

I think this is orthogonal. The buddies shown in the activity itself are 
always the buddies that are there at the moment. If a previously shared 
activity with BC is re-shared and BC is not around and D joins only D 
will be visible in the activity.

And D should be added to the list of members in the Journal then too, imho.
