Either way you can or cannot go wrong. I have found the really good officials know when to use such judgement and are "right" at the right time.
It has always been drilled in my head that when you apply the rules as written then the assignor has no choice but to back you up. Using common sense can get you out of a jam at certain points of the game, but in the last seconds when your decision will determine who wins and who loses I would go with the letter of the law every time.
Its not enough to know the rules and apply them correctly. You must know how to explain it to others!
