I disagree with this. Boost is becoming a large collection. Having class
boost::X defined in <boost/X.hpp> definitely helps.

I can't count the instances where I #include'd <boost/shared_ptr.hpp>. :-)

In the future Boost.Function may be used by a full-fledged Boost.Callback,
but it's not going to be undivideable part of it.
