What is the goal of this separation (e.g., do they want to avoid
runtime dependency (e.g., if Boost serialization is not used then
the application is not linked to boost) or do they want to also
avoid compile-time dependencies (e.g., if Boost serialization
is not used then Boost headers are not required to build the
application)? It is easier to support the former than the latter
(e.g., we could generate the implementation code for XML
serialization, Boost serialization, etc., into separate source
files but the generated header will still include declarations
for these things).

There is such a page, though it only includes high-impact features
(like new mappings):
There is also a number of smaller features in store that enhance
certain areas or improve the overall quality. We also work on the
"underlying technologies", e.g., Xerces-C++ 3.0.0 which will have
a number of XML Schema-related bugs fixed, as well as XQilla which
provides XPath 2.0 support (in the next release there will be an
example on how to use XPath together with the C++/Tree mapping).

Hm, we don't have any immediate plans to use 0x features, especially
since, I assume, compiler support for them is not very wide-spread.
However, if there is a feature that the community feels makes their
lives much easier then we are always open to add a compiler option.
