Some other possible names:

 - unmodified mode (-U)
 - encapsulated mode (-e)
 - installation only mode (-I)
 - non-local mode (-l)

Since this mode will often be used for testing Python installation
and setup issues, perhaps emphasizing on the testing nature would
be good...

 - test installation mode (-T)

FWIW: Isolated and -I works for me as well.
