Metadata can be automatically figured out using regexp matching like ^\d+(\.\d+){2,3}, but for explicit handling there should be should some callback or msi-specific version property in metadata. In the end it is pretty logical if binary distribution process can be configured using distribution specific (bdist_* specific) properties.

In the meanwhile here is the workaround:

from distutils.command.bdist_msi import bdist_msi

class bdist_msi_version_hack(bdist_msi):
    """ bdist_msi requires version to be in x.x.x format
        because it is embedded into MSI
    def run(self):
        # strip suffix from version, i.e. from 11.0.0+r3443
        saved = self.distribution.metadata.version
        self.distribution.metadata.version = saved.split('+')[0]
        saved_version = self.distribution.metadata.version

    cmdclass={'bdist_msi': bdist_msi_version_hack},
