it could make sense. If we assume that a "normal"
text font has a stem width of within a narrow range,
then a percentage is almost as good as a metric.
And if you're working in Fontographer to compensate for
gain (which I understand you yourself do), then it's much
easier to just make things 5% thinner than try to calculate
how many em units let's say 1/1000 of an inch is (for your
intended point size).
