Yeah, I hope they come in different gauges. That helps when using different tunings too. Sultans is one of those songs I like to play at the music store!

The tension of the strings is directly related to the ability to hold a tuning. Like if it gets too flappy it won't make a good sound. Or too tight will be unplayable.
The physics of the string division won't change but the nut would need to be cut for different thickness for string height difference and the truss rod tension for the different string tension.
The scale length is where the division of the string comes into play. The tension is more for tone, playability, those kind of things.
