"I thought this might be one possible origin of the expression, 'piss pot' as a term of derision."

I suppose it might, but I tend to think that a pot full of urine has on its own the inherent qualities that make it suitable as a derisive term, chief among those qualities being the fact that once a vessel has become a piss pot, it is fit for nothing other than being pissed on (in), as, for example, would be a treatise on the "Effect of Andromeda on Taurian Attitudes".
