In addition, I think that a single standard of namespaces should be
combined with a single standard of .hpp files location in main 'boost'

IMHO, simple libraries (such boost::mem_fn or boost::lexical_cast) which
consist of a single .hpp file can (or must) be placed in main 'boost'
directory, so user can write:

#include <boost/mem_fn.hpp>

For more complex libraries, all .hpp files must be placed in own
directory (like boost::ptr_container), so user writes:

#include <boost/ptr_container/ptr_container.hpp>
