I think, this would at least delay the official acceptance of
Boost.Atomic, as there will be less spur for it to happen.

Do you mean responsibility for accepting or rejecting these libraries,
were I a review manager? Yes, I would, at least regarding Boost.Move, as
I have relatively good understanding of the domain. It's harder with
Boost.Fiber as I'm not competent in its domain. The main obstacle for me
is lack of time, which, I think, is common for many of us.
