Indeed, I would assume that too.
Projections do not preserve parallelism, so I guess that the same 
geometries projected in two different srids could have different 
ST_Relate results.
If you want "true results", I think you have to go for a real coordinate 
space like 4326.

That's just the way I see things btw, I would really like someone to 
clarify this.
