We don't need formal boundaries, we determine what is suitable using
the submission process. This thread suggests that a DirectX wrapper
would be rejected.
FC++ was rejected, but phoenix was accepted. We don't have a formal
rule that divides the two but there was enough of a consensus that
FC++ doesn't fit even though it is highly regarded within the boost
community. The review process relies on considered judgement rather
than a set of fixed rules. We're not lawyers.
