I don't really know precisely what those files are about, but to the
extent that they're specific to Org, I don't see any reason to treat
them differently from any other org*.el file here.

AFAIK org-loaddefs.el is supposed to only be loaded when org-mode is
activated, whereas org-autoloads.el is loaded at Emacs start up (so it
should mostly contain an autoload for `org-mode` itself).

The elpa.gnu.org scripts will not look for the package's version in
org-version.el but in org.el's "Version:" header, but presumably
org-version.el is used by Org, so it's probably still useful (tho Org
could be changed to look for the corresponding info in org.el's
"Version:" header as well).
