This is exactly the sens I find in Toward, a library that is working on a proposal for review and at the end expect to be accepted in Boost. Libraries that don't pretend this should use a "Powered by" logo, as no affiliation to Boost is in the mind of the authors.

IMO it is useful to distinguish these libraries, be using a specific logo or via a page like the Libraies Under Construction.
