Most applications are not games ;). I'm not suggesting that any
library in Boost should not support building in multi-thread mode,
only that the default for <threading> be single.

I've never run into a bug in the single threaded msvcrt that didn't
also exist in the multi threaded msvcrt. What bugs are these?
In any event, in a situation like this it may be appropriate to
default <threading> to multi in <msvc> only. It still does not make
sense to set the general default to multi.
