No, my thought was that Boost 2.x would allow existing libraries to be
changed to support only C++11 compilers, and that new libraries would only
have to work with C++11 compilers. Existing libraries could continue to
support C++03 compilers if they want to, and aren't required to add C++11

Hey, we've dropped libraries before:-) But that's only because something
better came along and the old library had been deprecated for a long time.
