I think, there's mistake in your description of how to read the graph (or the
graph itself):

The center is the part of boost that is widely used by other libraries, or how
somebody on reddit phrased it "everything in the center is worth looking at".

While I think any library in Boost is worth looking at, things like Log, Pool,
Wave and Math are pretty close to the core of the graph, and I'd consider them
more as leaf libraries (e.g. Log isn't used by any other Boost library to my
knowledge). At the same time Ref, StaticAssert and ResultOf are placed on the
outskirts while they are clearly more widely used. That being said, some
libraries are rightly placed close to the center, so it looks like accounting
for dependencies on some libraries is not working.
