A library can be madr of several modules, so if the hypothesis is that only modules interface files (e.g. ixx or cppm files) are provided for that library along with a static or shared object, why are we focusing on modules as basic units instead of taking libraries as basic units?

Boost is header only (IIRC), so user just needs to add its directories to the Include dirs.

Boost is a mixture of header-only, header+source, and dual-mode individual libraries. Although the default distribution of Boost is source without binaries. The binaries, i.e. DLLs and/or LIBs, are generated by users and packaging providers.
