You make a couple of good points. These are relevant for regular projects
as well as those that use meta-programming. Did you submit requests for
enhancement? Even if Synopsis works out it would be good to improve
Doxygen as well.

I think that support of documentation of meta-programming constructs
is a whole new sort of documentation that is quite distinct in it's
needs since the coding idioms use C++, but not in the 'usual' way.
