In general I agree with you but the reality is that currently all (or
nearly all?) Boost libraries support c++03 and there are more c++03 test
runners than c++11 ones. Some of our users cannot move to c++11.

Are you saying that the support for c++03 in Test was dropped or will be
in the near future?
If that's the case shouldn't rather another module e.g. Test2 be created
Now it's a regression, see the Test matrix: Some
other libraries are affected as well.
