Alternatives you didn't mention:

1) Use TheContainer::value_type instead of std::pair<foo, bar>.

2) Use type deduction to avoid having to provide the type of the
elements altogether using auto or BOOST_AUTO.

I think your BOOST_FOREACH_PAIR is interesting, but maybe it could be
generalized to tuples?
