Yes, i.e. if we establish some convention like that, then the tools
should understand that.

This gives people much more freedom than have to have up to M*n
repositories (for n Boost libraries, and M different minimum-supported
standards) and especially have to go through an additional (M-1)
formal reviews for what is really the same library just switching
boost:: components to std:: ones.
