The first thing I thought of was that some of the LA iris and Japanese iris I like have standards much shorter then the falls.
Some aril species have standards much bigger than the falls.  Some of those I like too.
 Having a small difference between standards and falls may make an iris seem out of proportion.  But if the difference is great enough, you don't compare them, and can accept a different look.

Just right off the top of my head, how can a flower be balanced or in proportion if the standards are noticeably shorter?  Picturing this in my mind, does not give me a “balanced” picture??
