Fine, but would you feed this single 15 amp breaker with a 100 amp main, with the "real" 20 amp breaker perhaps 500' away in a basement?

As long as the wire is protected, it is safe...you're totally wrong on that. Now, convenience may be another matter. A black marker writing the main panel breaker number and it's amperage for the subpanel would be a simple way to indicate what the main supply to it is.
I think that the page may have turned, and everyone is not on the same page.
Be careful Playing with electricity.
Have a Great Thanksgiving Holiday.
