They should be trivially implementable using mbsrtowcstype of functions
and boost::locale::conv::utf_to_utf (header only)
Also note, the only compiler that actually provides char16_t and char32_t
at this point is GCC...
So meanwhile they would be quite useless.
(No, MSVC10 does not provide them they are typedefs(!) and not real types)
