Let me give a different answer.

To perform a high accuracy calculation...use a high accuracy functional.

The technical convergence of, for instance, energy at a level of 0.01
eV/atom is easy, and the default parameters are close to good enough in
most cases. (Phonons may require some care.)

The accuracy of some functionals is an order of magnitude larger than this,
i.e. 0.1eV/atom or worse.
