If I may be so bold as to summarize your point:
In order to distribute boost as individual libraries as opposed to a
monolithic set, individual library versioning will sooner or later have
to be adopted.
I think this is indisputable. But I don't think we have to worry about
in practice. Whatever we do, it will take sometime to get there and, if
we ever do get there, I think that adding this feature won't be a big
problem. Of course if we don't ever get there, we've got nothing
nothing to worry about.
