"In both cases, the counterpoint of 'necessary' accuracy is completely removed by the idea of naked-eye observation of the Belt Stars, i.e. translating it from eye to paper, then expanding it to the size of the Giza plateau, which, mind you, is no flat pancake. :) In other words, if it isn't perfect to 1 foot, there is good reason why that might be.
