Yes, I think that would work.

I'm not keen on this - especially for tests that are run as part of
boost regression testing as it's nice to use the shared libraries. I'm
not as keen on header only libraries as many on this list.

Well, I think so, but I'm not 100% sure. I suppose my concern is that
most of Boost.Test is very flexible and extensible, while the exception
testing seems quite closed in comparison. But, of course, it's at an
early stage and it might be best to get some more experience with it and
see how it goes.
