It sounds like the committee's workflow is defective. If more people
should interact with the library before it goes into the standard,
here's a novel idea:

    Don't put it in the standard yet.

Why does Boost.Text have to go into the standard right away? Why can't
it enjoy life as its own non-std library for a few years, the way that
Asio did? Plenty of users and companies can enjoy the Unicode library
without it having to be in the std:: namespace.
