No, a header called boost/mpl/something.hpp will never be part of Core, and
neither will a component boost::mpl::something. We might duplicate these as
boost/core/something.hpp and boost::core::something, but they will not be
quite the same as their mpl counterparts, and will not magically make a
module that includes a boost/mpl/ header drop its dependency to MPL.

As John said, let's not get carried away. Module names, header directories,
namespaces should match. boost/, boost/detail/, boost/pending/ headers that
do not obviously belong to a specific module can arguably be considered fair
