Yes, I know of those who use CFA to find the factors and then subject each factor to RM.
Why? I don't know.
I'd rather start with a theory which describes how the variable should look, and use RM to examine that…

The only problem I have is should I use factor analysis to find the a-priori dimensions.  I always follow up with a Rasch Analysis.  Two things were left out   The number of types of questions makes a big difference and the culture of the respondents.  With Rasch, this does not seem to be the case to any degree.
