Yes, it is.
An it´s why we have standard *objective* measuring units.
It really *is* that simple. ;^)
If a person´s weight is 90kg (or it´s equivalent in the proper weight unit
;^) ), it does not matter if that person is 2 meters tall or 1.3 meters. The
90kg are the same for both and do not change.
Really, they do not. Neither do pixels.
If that person is obese or not depending on the height is completely
irrelevant when measuring weight; in the same way that 1GP will be 1GP if
you have enough pixels, regardless of content (or quality of the content).
