You've lost me.
I'm suggesting *single* place to maintain all the common Boost development
guidelines, namely boost.org.

Clearly, we have a hierarchy of the recommendations here:
- common guidelines
- library-specific guidelines based on/extending the common ones
I'm talking about common guidelines here, not the library-specific ones.

too easy to edit by too many or too easy to sneak unwanted edits.
