So for packages that don't come with their own build script, and whose wheels lack any compiled code, I think it should be allowed to use the wheel for packaging our rpms.
I'm OK with using wheels in place of source tarball, in these cases as you describe.
Somewhat ambivalent about just dropping the wheel into site-packages and leaving it at that. Fedora allows using wheels, in a way , but they unpack them in the %install section (via a patch to pip  that we don't have but could conceivably adopt). I think we should do the same thing, as opposed to simply installing the wheel, but i don't really have a good reason, just a gut feeling.
