Most people familiar with hierarchical FSMs (UML ones anyway) don't have a
problem seeing the logic. Also, I don't see what I should explain more than I
do already.

I can do that.

It may prove your words in your case, I don't think it proves anything how
well other people can learn the syntax. See comments/reviews from people who
have actually used the library.

True. Then again, I don't see much of a difference usability-wise between:

struct MyState : fsm::simple_state<
  MyState, Machine, mpl::list< /* ... */ > > {};

struct MyState : fsm::simple_state< MyState, Machine >
  typedef mpl::list< /* ... */ > reactions;
