I don't think it HAS to use a standard license. Any of the boost license
would be Open Source because the source code has to be available and can be
modified at will. If you just explain that boost is more of a collection
of individual maintained libraries rather than one piece of software and
would be under a wide variety of licenses but all licensees will meet
these minimum requires they will be satisfied.
