My initial response was misleading, in part because I misunderstood  
in what way it wasn't working.

The key to having Scaling work here is that the Graphic used for the  
PlotMarker have a PlotRange that is not dependent on the scaled  
object.  What happens is that the PlotRange for Graphics[Scale[..]]  
by default is chosen to tightly fit the contents.  So these all look  
the same:

Graphics[Scale[Disk[{0, 0}, 1], #]] & /@ {0.25, 0.5, 1}

while these behave as expected:

Graphics[Scale[Disk[{0, 0}, 1], #], PlotRange -> 1] & /@ {0.25, 0.5, 1}

Note that PlotMarkers has its own idea of how big the marker should  
be, and this can be controlled by using {{marker1, size1},{marker2,  
size2}, ...}.
