I don't think there are. It would be good if someone were to write
them. My personal take is that Javascript is okay if:

   a. functionality degrades gracefully when JS is off
   b. the particular functionality chosen doesn't annoy me ;-)

I would also like library authors to be mindful of the fact that we're
trying to move to a (more) consistent look & feel for Boost
documentation, so I would prefer if we only used JS that is generally
accepted for future adoption (e.g. Jonathan Turkanis' menu control).
