No.  Again, all the "font" shorthand in question does to the "font-size" is 
effectively specify:

   font-size: medium;
   font-size: 70%;

When converting the 70% to an absolute length, the "percentages" section in the 
description of the font-size property is applied.  I don't see where you're 
insisting on pulling the "UA default setting" out of here... it doesn't matter 
what the UA default setting is; only what the computed font-size of the parent 
of the node in question is.
