A reference tension really is just that: a reference. You're targeting feel, not final tension. Even IF you were able to eliminate that variability, you'd have an overnight tension loss of (loosely) 10% for ANY string. In the end, it doesn't matter what the reference tension it, you'll always be below.

HOWEVER, if you really think about it: people are playing as soft a string bed as they expect, because they use a reference tension to get a reference string bed stiffness, and once they get it back into their hands, they're getting exactly what they expect. (again, it all boils down to the understanding of reference)
