Yep, first! Having lots of fun.. And lots of pain.

It would have been as easy as overriding the default image with an
appropriate xsl:param option during doc builds.

I like obvious, and diplomatic, solutions ;-)

Well.. It's no longer an issue. I changed the XSL such that the Boost
navbar, and hence logo, only show up when building within the Boost
tree. Others that build outside the tree will not get the navbar by
default. The can ask to include the navbar, but will also have to
specify to include the Boost logo explicitly (or their own explicitly).
So an appearance of the Boost logo outside of Boost should now be
considered a deliberate choice (double choice at that).

Enjoy ;-)
