If they were not timed there would be no challenge in getting them. For example Infected Ground optional is saving all 10 officers from being assimilated. It's definitely not easy with a pug. Optional bag can't contain EDCs or Borg Tech anyway (at least I haven't seen them).

But that's the point, everyone will be needing them, so what's the point then? I think it should drop one for everyone.
Considering how previously bossed dropped only one item (e.g. weapon or kit) it's a huge improvement. You are always guaranteed to get loot. If anything your beef is with the need/greed system. Everyone needing on gear they actually NEED is just like a random roll.

Edit: Actually considering how selfish some people are in Holodeck (as opposed to playing in Tribble) maybe a Roll/Pass system would be better.
