I could swear I've heard it stated before that the Sorting Hat itself (in HP canon) also takes numbers into account somewhat, though. I mean, it would be ridiculous if one year there were 20 new Slytherins and only 3 new students in each of the other houses or something.

edit: haha, it wouldn't matter interaction-wise but isn't there a House Cup? If you've got twice the number of people earning (or losing, but I imagine you earn more points than lose on the whole) points for one house compared to all the others, it would be mighty unbalanced.
