You have misunderstood the question completely. It is not:
        Is Threads under the BSL?
(we know the answer to that is "Yes".)

The question is:
        Are there any /other/ libraries that are not under the BSL?

If the answer to that question is "No", then the statement:
        Currently, some Boost libraries have their own licenses.
is obviously false, and we can tidy up the licensing page (which will
make some corporate lawyers happy).
