Exterior Walls - Usable Area

For the area line - I take it to the face of the glass and do not "jog" around the mullions. Where we have brick piers between sections of windows, can I also not jog around the piers and consider the face of glass the predominate surface.

For Example, 8' of window 2' of brick piers?
