They can use the parsing part alone today as well as the serializing
part, with a dependence on <boost/asio/buffer.hpp>. Examples of this
usage are in the documentation.

I believe the dependency on <boost/asio/buffer.hpp> is the main point
of contention (Niall, confirm?). I would like to have this discussion
if possible since a resolution would satisfy everyone.

This I have not heard of before, and is not a supported use-case. I
don't think its particularly interesting to users.
