I think the subnamespaces are a bad idea. I suggest that

#include <boost/algorithm/string.hpp>
  - Includes all string algorithms, in namespace boost::algorithm

#include <boost/algorithm/container.hpp>
  - Includes all container algorithms, in namespace boost::algorithm

#include <boost/algorithm.hpp>
  - Includes all boost/algorithm/* and imports them all into namespace
"boost" with using declarations.
