Personally I would like to keep this functionality in core.img.
So, how is the "rescue shell" different that "grub itself". Why would it
find modules that "grub itself" does not find?

User can use ls and insmod commands to load those modules from disk. Most common problem with GRUB legacy is that it just prints GRUB on screen. This will kinda remove that problem as user still has a way to boot his system with some keypresses.
