No, they would not be precise but they would perceptually be
exact enough.  Without knowing precisely how these midi clock
values work, I would imagine that the five notes of a quintuplet
in a MIDI file would have the following clock durations: 77 77 77 77 76.

So what if four notes are of length 77 and one note is length 76?
No one can hear the difference.
