Another point that occur to me is that: how much different is this
situation than with other existing library that has a different pace of
updates (like ASIO for ex.) than regular Boost and for which the
asymmetry between the current version in boost and the current free
standing version may be large but get fixed at some later point ?

In both case we have a software that lives following its own agenda then
get merged back into boost at some (ir)regular intervals.
