The library uses new data structures with improved computational complexity
of many algorithms against data structures used in C++ standard containers.
This is why this library supersedes facilities of standard containers. I
will add a section to the documentation with specific improvements.

only. It seems to me it is quite reasonable. For example, CGAL offers
Multiset container with similar advanced functionality and uses name “STL
Extensions for CGAL”. Suggestions are welcome.
