I have probably misunderstood or overlooked something, but I don't get

Optional modules would be singular like the core and would be versioned with the core but they would not be included in the default installation.  Optional modules would be "installed-on-demand" based on a plugin's request and admin's approval to install, and the version of the optional module installed would be determined by the version of the WordPress core that is installing it.
