(sorry for the duplicate message, the first one bounced)

My 2 cents...

1) The 1891 Breitkopf & Härtel edition of Brahms' Piano Trio
   Op.8 (1889 version) has the smaller staves exactly 2/3
   the height of the larger staves. Click "Complete score":,_Op.8_%28Brahms,_Johannes%29#2nd_version_.281889.29
   I think that's a good reference to follow.

2) Instead of this:
      fontSize = #-3
      \override StaffSymbol #'staff-space = #(magstep -3)
   I would prefer this:
      \override StaffSymbol #'staff-space = #2/3
      fontSize = #(magnification->font-size 2/3)
   (this equates to a font-size of -3.50977500432694)
