A library can support C++03 and yet be in epochs 11 and later.

It's a viable option, but then the lib won't get into Boost11, unless
Boost.MPL inclusion
is conditional on BOOST_ASSUME_CXX. Not being in epoch Boost11 does not
mean the lib
can't be actively maintained and work in C++11 and later (which is
mostly the case for
C++03-compatible code).
