The current agreement is to limit the number of different logos, especially no special logo for rejected libraries. I'm perfectly OK with this. The status of a library rejected during review is quite similar to the status of a library that is not yet proposed for review, so I think the same logo could be appropriate for both. A quite common case will also be that a rejected library is simply not touched again after it was rejected. So this could be also OK (="time freeze").
My 3 cents. If they have been rejected, but are still working to
improve the proposal, then they are still proposed for. If they have
abandoned the effort, either by abandoning the software completely, or
by deciding to continue without the software outside of any association
with boost, then they don't need a special icon for that state. They
might be using boost, but are not in any other way associated with boost.
