PIP can be easily used inside any Python virtual environment when really 
needed, so IMHO, there is no need to propagate PIP mess system wide, and we 
should system-wide installs be from rpms only by default.

Not only many versions of same packages is problem with PIP, but we also lose 
track of library dependencies in binary packages.
