I don't see the connection to the c++03 discussion,
but other than that: Sure, why not.
If time to hello world is a concern, one can still use vcpkg,
conan, homebrew or the system package manager (where available).
But please, please add a prominent explanation to the getting
started pages (e.g. https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_68_0/more/getting_started/windows.html)
how I can compile boost using a particular language standard and
a particular compiler.
Sorry, but I can resists: It would be so nice, if boost would just use cmake ;)
