This was certainly true in the past. It is why bcp exists. shared_ptr.hpp
for years even supported compilation with a completely empty config.hpp on a
reasonably conforming compiler, for people who didn't even want

It may be less true today though, as it's gotten way easier to "use Boost"
in a project. But there are still places where Boost as a whole is banned,
yet a module may be able to slip through.
