Subtle Launchpad Behaviour

Has anyone ever noticed that depending on the size of the dock icons, the size of the launchpad icons changes very subtlety. For example, a bigger dock will have smaller launchpad icons to accommodate five rows of icons, where a smaller dock will have bigger icons that stretch to fill the screen space.

This is really a strange result of changing the dock size. For months my Launchpad just looked strange because of the slightly small icons. As someone who's obsessed with the appearance of my MacBook, it bothers me that I can't have big dock icons as well as big launchpad icons (that's the way I prefer them to appear).

Maybe just a nitpick by myself, but I'd like to know what others thought about it.
