But setup.py is just code, so it can invoke code in other files in
order to determine the dependencies.

Is that a problem?

As far as I
understand it, a requirements file is more for developing a set of
packages with versions known to work well in a certain
configuration--e.g. if you are deploying a web application with a
complex list of requirements that is only really tested with a
specific set of versions of those requirements, something of that
nature.

I think this behavior is by design.

If so, IMHO this design is broken because it excludes the pbr
approach, and the OpenStack community is a significant contributor to
the Python ecosystem:

Maybe the pbr approach is broken. I am rather fond of this post https://caremad.io/2013/07/setup-vs-requirement/ which explains why requirements.txt perhaps should be used differently than setup.py.
