We can execute the test with some macro specifying (in C++11) if we want
to test it using boost move or not. That would cover both C++11 and
Boost.Move users writing portable C+++03/C++11 code.

That's possible at this moment, although it is not being tested.

While I haven't split this into another header, the latest commit,
removes the array specialization, tidies doxygen macros with other macro
utilities and the readability of the implementation has been improved as
the header has much less code:

unique_ptr is also now constructible and assignable from zero in c++03 code.

Tested in several GCC, MSVC and Clang versions, both in C++03 and C++11
modes. I won't have time in the following days to continue working in
your proposed changes, but at least I wanted to to show that we've
progressed a bit.
