I've only skimmed it, but it looks good! I do have one very superficial
suggestion about future documentation -- it may be helpful to use a
custom-build of quickbook that highlights the "keywords" concept and
requires (and also recommend users to update their IDE to highlight on
these keywords as well, since it makes things much easier to read, at least
IMO). You can make the changes to quickbook by altering the keywords_holder
type in syntax_highlight.cpp.

Actually, quickbook should probably be officially updated for C++11
keywords too. It seems as though they were never added.
