I'm not certain which population you are using for consensus. The
barriers of getting a C++11 only library into Boost are currently the
difficulties raised by Robert Ramey in the "Thoughts of Boost v2" branch
of this thread. Another barrier is the submission of a C++11 only library.

As announced in the annual Future of Boost session at C++Now, Sebastian
Redl will be drafting how-to suggestions for integrating C++11/14 only
libraries into Boost. While Robert's concerns must all be addressed,
this isn't a problem that is entirely unique and one that we haven't
dealt with before.
