I'm not sure that's a good choice either, for all that it sounds cool.

Namespace boost::using would be confusing if it weren't illegal.

"Using Boost.Using" in documentation would be confusing. (Even more so
if "Boost" were omitted.)

I'm sure some people would think, on seeing it in an index or table of
contents somewhere, that it referred to general usage instructions for
Boost as a whole, rather than the name of a particular library.
