Yes, that's technically correct.  However, a common use case of
face-remapping-alist is to merge a new attribute into the existing
definition of a face, e.g:

  ((default (:height 1.2) default))

Moreover, the default face seems to be a special case.  If you define
face-remapping-alist as following:

  ((default (:height 1.2)))

the height attribute is merged into the existing definition of the
default face.  What this means is that the faces used in a buffer will
typically (but not necessarily) depend on the default font and thus on
the frame in which the buffer is displayed.
