The only reason is that no such library has come through the Boost
review process. As far as I know, nobody else has mentioned an interest
in submitting such a library, although I'm sure there is interest.

Absolutely. Library proposals should be posted on the Boost developers
list (this is the users list). If you haven't already read it, there is
a description of the library submission process here:
