[R] Why are default sizes of plotting characters different?

I had occasion to use panel.superpose to draw points in a lattice
plot, and chose to set the size to 1.1 using trellis.par.set(). I
also wished to add some other plotting characters which I did with
grid.points. To get them looking like the same size as those done
with panel.superpose, I needed to set the size to 0.8 using size =
unit(.8, "char"). Now they end up looking quite similar even if not
Evidently, the default values have different bases. What is the
thinking behind those defaults?
