I am trying to make Boost.Test UTF the interface these docs will describe
(isn't this what you wanted?). Thus we dropped: test execution monitor,
program execution monitor, execution monitor from all the user's guide and
advanced usage sections. Few components which I still want to cover I placed
in reference docs. This location makes most since this is really is a
programmer interface with some semantic behind it.

Yes and No. The main intention here is to ensure that users will never get
confused these components as public interfaces of UTF. I intentionally want
them to look very different.

Not quite sure how index is going to help with what I am after.
