The current java.lang.module.ModuleDescriptor.Version class contains the 

"Vaguely Debian-like version strings, for now.
"This will, eventually, change."

At some point the syntax and semantics of version designators has to be 
worked out and agreed upon.  Ideally the scheme would be compatible with 
as many existing widely deployed schemes as possible in terms of allowed 
syntax, and as much as possible, collation order (at least within the 
context of other modules from the same versioning scheme).
