Yes but once you know which stones you can disregard as being dead,
counting the board becomes a simple flood-fill exercise, isn't it?

I think 95% would be fine for automatic scoring purposes. If you
properly visualise the stones evaluated as dead/alive and let the user
change their status with a single touch, fixing up any errors manually
should be bearable and quick.
