Actually, I was being quite precise there. I didn't use the words 'right' or 'wrong' but 'correct', and I even qualified that by adding the 'can legitimately be called' phrase before it.

Take subjective scoring in the Olympics for example. If someone performs well in an ice skating competition and are given a good score, then you can't claim the score was 'right' in a mathematical sense, but to say that the judges gave a correct score, is perfectly satisfactory.

I'd say the word "accurate" is more accurate.
