This sounds like a reasonable plan to me (I've been keen to have pip do
this on the Linux side of things for a while).

If the pip team were willing to start down this path, changing the default
in 3.5 next year might still be cutting things a little fine. While I think
it's worth aiming for that, I also wouldn't see it as a big deal if the
change slipped to 3.6 in 2017.
