Private reviews for a Boost library are entirely different than
private committee discussions for changing the C++ standard. In the
Boost case usage of the library collection is entirely opt-in. And
usage of individual libraries is similarly opt-in. A newly added Boost
library does not create additional work or obligate users.
Compare this with the standard, which is not a collection of libraries
or even a collection of code, but an ever-changing specification which
vendors must implement in order to have a conforming system. Changes
to the standard create obligations for everyone, not just vendors but
the entire C++ community at the very least because programmers will
have to learn and understand changes to the language itself in order
to understand code.
