The overall product of the  Masoretes, word counts, etc., indicates the 
attention they put to detail.  Their goals were to get the text exactly 
correct.  They were meticulous and immersed in a community of 
knowledgeable people.  I'm sure they made a good shot at getting the 
pointing correct.

One scientific approach to evaluating their efforts would be to test 
their masora notes against their text.  Has anyone checked them?
