>From a set-theoretic perspective, if "agree" and "disagree" are binary
states, this is indeed a fact. However, consider that the ISO C++ Standards
committee's voting protocol covers a higher cardinality of states (the full
enumeration is "strongly agree", "agree", "neutral", "disagree", and
"strongly disagree"). My opinion is that the OP's "fact" is therefore not
valid in the paradigm of the C++ community, which is a superset of the
Boost community.
