I find the idea of tracking the dependencies in the script might be a
good idea.
However, magically downloading without warning the user is in my point
of view for sure a bad idea.
I would far prefer that pip could scan a script to know the dependencies.
(A little bit like a requirements.txt but inside the script)
A special comment or docstring would do the job. for example

"""
pip_requirements:
    - requests >0.0
    - asyncio
""""

to run the script it would be at the first time a  two step process
for example:

python3 -m pip --script-dependencies [--user] my_script.py
python3 my_script.py
