from the name of the library Boost.Locale and the section "What is Boost.Locale?" I didn't get enough information about the motivation and the scope of the library. I think that maybe be this is due to the fact that the dependency to ICU hides a lot of features the library provides. I think that a direct link to what ICU is is a must, but I would expect a little bit more than "On the other hand, there is a great, well debugged, high quality, widely used ICU library that gives all of the goodies" in this section.
>From my side if the library was named Boost.Internationalization I'm sure I would had take a look long time ago. Do you think that this renaming (or a shorter one) will cover the whole library or there are parts of the library that don't fall in the internationalization domain?
As the review period has been extended, I will try to review at least the documentation.
