Yes, but BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT is a library writers tool, not really for end users.
And the same applies to Concept checking and boost test.

I'm familar with the DBC proposal and I hope it makes it into the standard, But
I'm not sure how much influence it has had on the proposal or its acceptance.
However, I would support a macro in boost if its primary purpose was to support
something needed in the standard. And you have no idea how hard it is for me
to write that.
