That's ok, I believe I've expressed my suggestions in the libc++ issue
you linked to earlier. Just to summarize (and add another point):

1. Think of the downstream packagers (Debian, Fedora, etc).

2. Make it easy and fast for build systems to find the std module
   location (e.g., reuse mechanisms such as -print-search-dirs
   that build systems already likely use).

3. Don't make this depend on solving "package management" or other
   hypothetical requirements.

We have experience with two of the three major standard library
implementations (MS STL and libc++) and making the std module
source file available in a way similar to headers does the job.
