Too meticulous? Yeah, let's operate under the "close enough" system. "You didn't land in bounds, but you were close, so here, have a touchdown."
And the reason that would have been a TD in the 90s was because replay wasn't around for most of that decade, so the call on the field, that of a touchdown, would have stood. But today's reversal showed why replay is so great, as Dallas would have gotten a tainted win cause of a touchdown that should never have counted. Replay got it right.
