Are you suggesting that the Net-TS buffer concepts do not depend on
Boost.Asio? That's not entirely correct.
Net-TS buffer sequence iterator value types must be convertible to
`std::experimental::net::mutable_buffer`. In the Net-TS compatible
version of Asio these types are `boost::asio::const_buffer` and
There is simply no way to avoid the dependency on these concrete types
in Asio. In my other post I am proposing a library Boost.Buffers to
work around this problem, so that people (like me) can write libraries
which use only Asio buffer concepts, without a dependency on all of
Asio (and everything that Asio depends on, recursively).
