I do not think that is OK. But why would you want to do that when a simple

git rm index.html boost.css
git mv v2/* .
rm -rf v2
git commit -a -m "move v2 into root"

and fixing references in bootstrap and elsewhere should do?

You need to decide which of the duplicated index.html and boost.css to
move out of the way or delete. I have not tried to figure which one make
the more sense.

After this you can try

git blame util/string.jam

or other history inspecting tools in git and you will still have history
