Currently, we don't even require that a library builds on any specific
compilers, let alone warning free. What you're suggesting adds a
considerable burden on a developer - which is particularly unfair if
the library is eventually rejected. Implementation issues can be fixed
after the review and, in this case, I would hope it would be with the
help of the boost community.
