Not sure... I don't think there are that many Boost libraries that
use Boost.Parameter so I don't believe that you'd have that too many
conflicting defaults.

Successive redefinition between compiled files but it probably won't
work within the same translation unit. You'd have to undef all the
header guards, and that's probably going to result in some serious
violations of the ODR (one definition rule).

I'm probably going to end up overriding the default in my include
chain, but I think the best solution may simply be to change the
default in Boost.Parameter.
