I think the Boost authors are unlikely to decide to ignore a part of the
standard just because one person believes it is obnoxious and misguided
and promotes sloppy coding.

I would suggest making your case about the default constructibility of
forward iterators at comp.std.c++. If you gain consensus there that
this requirement is indeed misguided, then your request will carry
more weight here.
