There are (at least) these possibilities:

* A component which goes into namespace boost, and is intended to
complement other namespace boost components.

* A separate library, with its own outer namespace, which uses
namespace boost components in passing, but is not part of namespace

* A completely separate library, which makes no reference whatsoever
to namespace boost components.

It seems to me that all of the above are acceptable for posting on

Authors will make the initial decision. They can ask people via this
mailing list if guidance is desired. If reviewers feel strongly,
they can try to convince an author to move a component into/out-of
namespace boost.
