OTOH that is probably somewhat different from the existing code -
reading between the
lines for the state of completion port support, anyway.

This component would be much higher level than anything else in Boost,
except perhaps
quickbook and the preprocessor.

Is it really desirable that it should be 'part of boost'? What is the
point, compared
to a project on Googlecode that uses Boost?

I like messaging products and value choice, but this smacks of an
attempt to compete
with Apache qpid by buddying up to an existing project. Note that qpid
already uses
Boost, though once again its not an asio user.

I think it should be considered, but with some caution. What is the
intended approach
to on-the-wire etc - is it going to be rewritten as an amqp 1.0 system,
for example?
