I would think that since the Library Proposal of the interface is a separate
document than the Boost implementation+docs of that interface they would
have different licenses. And therefore not present a problem when the
Library Proposal is accepted as then some sort of license transfer to the
standards organization would happen.

But I guess Beman should bring that up with the lawyers also ;-)
