It won't be as broad as specifying a scale for a specific model that's shared between different units, but it will be more accurate since models don't determine the size of a unit. For example, blizzard uses the tauren model to create the flaskataur on the PTR, which is considerably larger than a normal tauren.

I didn't realize UnitRace didn't work on NPCs that use a playable race.
Yes, using NPC Ids is a solution we though about, but that means we have to map all npcID from the game to a race? How much IDs does that represents? How could this be easily maintenable?
