Queries regarding python packages using setuptools

I have two queries that I'd like clarified please:

1. Is the setup.py file to be included in the rpm? I was under the
impression that this file is only required for building that package and
therefore should not be part of the rpm. Is this correct?

2. Are python eggs to be generated for *all* python packages, or only
python modules (ie, files in python_sitelib/sitearch)? For example, the
sugar package that I'm reviewing[1] goes into "sugaractivitydir" and
does not create an egg-info file. Do I need to request the submitter to
force it to create them?
