Yes I hadn't read this paragraph really carefully but I agree that
the choice is deliberate (and imho not really wrong, the larger
sizes looks a bit thin). But I came across the problem due to a
question were someone wanted the "normal" latex fonts and not the
one from fix-cm in the headings. 

Couldn't an option for fix-cm, e.g. [allopticalsizes] be a solution?
