I would have to disagree on such a high estimate of reliability. Just 
browsing the transliterations found in the Hexapla (notably, the second 
column, aka "Secunda") and the LXX would indicate there is certainly 
room for doubts on the accuracy of the Masoretic pointing. For example, 
the changes under Philippi's Law (accented, originallyclosed syllable 
<i> becomes <a>) does not occur in the Hexapla or the Babylonian 
vocalization, but does occur in the Masoretic/Tiberian pronunciation.
