Given the text I snipped, I don't see how one could characterize the
review result as "Conditionally Accepted"

What is this suppossed to mean exactly. That it should be integrated
into boost as soon as it meets some list of conditions? What are these?
Who determines when they are met. I'd feel much more comfortable with
something like

The library is rejected.

Many reviewers felt that the library had a lot of promise but needs
significant alterations and/or enhancements before it can accepted into
boost. The author is encouraged to address the issues raised in the
review and resubmit it.

Wouldn't the be a more accurate and fair assessment and better proposal
for future action?
