From what I can see the driver doesn't handle adding a new entry in the 
spatial_ref_sys table if there's no AUTHORITY node, such as in your use case. 
From what I can see, it also probably doesn't properly support creating 
entries in spatial_ref_sys with Spatialite 4 layout (the driver has been 
likely developped during Spatialite 3 era)
It is "intentional" in the meaning that this wasn't implemented, but could 
potentially be added. Could be worth a ticket in Trac.

No, the workaround is the one you found. Make sure a EPSG code is attached to 
the input dataset, or assign it explictly
