I may be getting this wrong but but I wouldn't think of it that way.
The visualize the scale factor to 1)bring the roman font to, more or
less, match the size of CM at the point size given in the
\documentclass command and 2)scale the other fonts so the x-size is
approximately the same as that of the roman font (actually I like the
mono font's x-size to be slightly smaller and maybe even the sans
serif font too --- depending upon design). If the font really has
different design at different point sizes then this is not quite
right and the two scaling methods will give different results; e.g. CM.
