That's the historical (pre-boost if you will) name of the library.

> "boost::regex" (is this a typedef for boost::reg_expression<...>?)

You mean the introduction page? If so the first code on that page is:

namespace boost{

template <class charT,
          class traits = regex_traits<charT>,
          class Allocator = std::allocator<charT> >
class reg_expression;

typedef reg_expression<char> regex;
typedef reg_expression<wchar_t> wregex;
