I've just looked into César Franck's Violin Sonata A major (Henle 293,
engraved 1975).  In this score, broken slurs in the small staff are in
fact always horizontally smaller (this is, the x coordinate value of
the starting point is larger) -- they are printed in a natural size,
so to say.

Another example is the Urtext edition of the three Violin Sonatas of
Johannes Brahms (UE 50011-50013, engraved 1973).  Here the smaller
staff for the Violin is typeset with a larger size, compared to the
Henle edition from Franck.  In most cases, both broken slurs and ties
are aligned vertically.  Sometimes the slurs and ties of the smaller
staff are shorter, and very seldom they are *a bit* larger, probably
caused by aligning with the eye and not with a ruler.
