Firstly, you could design the symbol in a diagram where the user would almost never encounter the design scale. For example, you could design the symbol in a diagram with the scale set to 1:100,000. When the symbol was instanced into a diagram of a normal scale, the range-of-eight would take effect and the symbol would always be anti-scaled.
