I don't really know. I'd check the case of inserting a comment into the
document, then printing with the print dialog "comment: Place in
margins" option enabled. That does some sort of scaling to squeeze the
comments into the print output, but I don't know if it has anything to
do with this particular ScaleX/Y. Likewise the "Pages per sheet" I
don't immediately know if that scaling is done by anything related to
this case, or a separate post processing step.
