I just replicated the acknowledgements that were present as a comment
in the original header (except I moved myself from the technical
description to this dedicated section).
Will it be ok if I add you and Beman in the beginning of the
Acknowledgements section? I don't know how to set the authors just for
this page (i.e. those listed in the QuickBook header and displayed in
the bottom right of the generated html).

You mean BOOST_SCOPED_ENUM_START/BOOST_SCOPED_ENUM_END macros? In the
implementation they were (and are) equivalent to
seems to have been the difference at some point but no more. Given
that the latter offer more flexibility, I deprecated the others.

Yes, we need to specify the authors of the components in the docs somehow.
