No and yes. I suspect the origional costs came from "what the designers thought it should cost." Over the years those costs have been modified by playtesting and various cost fomulas. S. Birol Akmeric presented one in Incoming! #1, and I've come up with my own heavily modified version. Neither one is comprehensive and mine relies a lot on feedback from the mailing list.

You're right that 100 points buys different things in different armies. It's difficult to change things as NetEpic has so much historical inertia towards keeping things the same, but this revision is making a good attempt. If you've got ideas and opinions, and can back them up with valid arguements, we'd like to hear about them. We've mostly finished the army books, but we'll be going back through everything at least one more time, and until the version number says "5.0" it's open to debate.
