Your use cases are correct. Ideally in the future 1) won't require --user but that's a different discussion :)

The wheels in ensurepip are taken from PyPI and are built with ``python setup.py bdist_wheel --no-script`` (I may have the command parameter wrong for excluding scripts, and the latest Wheel excludes them by default). You should be able to reproduce them by downloading the tarball, unpacking it, and running that command. If you can't let me know and I'll fix it. It may not be a byte for byte reproduction, I don't know if ``setup.py bdist_wheel`` for pure python has a deterministic output, but the contents should be the exact same.
