I want to stress that TeX is not about ultimate quality.
It was rather about reaching a sufficient quality at some point and then
allowing TeX documents to stay reproducable in that quality over a
lifetime longer than a few decades, e.g. in 500 years, by documenting
the whole system TeX+Metafont+Fonts in a couple of books and
TeX is kind of a software equivalent of the pyramids (seen as a temporal
long distance message).
