This seems reasonable, but scripts written to venvs by e.g. pip hard-code the path to the venv, and this is a stumbling block to relocatability. There is no reason to use the activate scripts except under interactive use - a script installed in a venv should be directly runnable from its bin directory, but that currently won't work if the venv is moved to a new location.

Outside of Python I maintain the distlib library which pip uses under the covers to write installed scripts, and I will try to consider a solution which solves the wider problem.
