I don't think so. As Dave said, there are already existing library
components whose use of dynamic memory is not parameterized. So I
can't see refusing new components on that basis.

That doesn't mean Boost shouldn't have a more explicit policy, but
I doubt that simply parameterizing everything with an allocator is
the way to go.

It also doesn't mean the standard shouldn't have a more explicit
policy, but achieving one will be non-trivial.
