The load_entry_point needs the dist name because of how it's implemented - it 
defers to the distribution instance. AFAICT there are no actual checks.

def load_entry_point(dist, group, name):
    """Return `name` entry point of `group` for `dist` or raise ImportError"""
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
