Why are the sloped bricks numbered as they are?

For instance, the Slope Brick 10 6 x 8 is closer to 9 degrees. The Slope Brick 33 3 x 1 is closer to 27 degrees.

I also object to where the slope is being measured from. E.g. I think the slope should be measured when the bricks are stacked on top of each other. See the black dashed lines in the following images:

I thought that the 33 came from the 1 to 3 ratio of the bricks, and wasn't actually degrees at first.
