Reproduction ratio: 70-200 F2.8 vs. F4

Nikon lists the reproduction ratios of the VRII and the new F4 as .25 and .274 respectively, but my understanding is that the F4 has far less focus breathing and a minimum focus distance of 3.28 ft vs 4.6ft. Shouldn't the F4 then be capable of a much higher reproduction ratio at close distances?  Am I missing something?
