I do totally agree with you. I am not arguing against you. I am just
providing the extracts of the norm more or less (rather less in this
case) related to the question of precision that has been risen earlier
in the discussion.

The original question still remains. Should a boost::complex class rely
on the std::complex implementation no matter how (im-)precise or should
boost provide a truly precise complex class.
