Anyway, that list is indeed old and needs to be updated, but having the A3090 or its variants does not give a mouse flawless tracking by default. Testing has to be done to determine if the mouse doesn't have hardwired prediction, acceleration, tracking bugs, etc., and only owners of the mice can perform those tests. To make a reliable list of all the mice with "flawless" tracking, one would have to own all the gaming mice in existence and test them one by one, which is probably why we're not seeing any updated lists.
Regardless of context, it's still not practical to claim. Of course everyone understands what Wata meant, though concerning issues, many sensors share identical "flaws" on a scientific field.
Many gamers and mouse enthusiasts also consider high lift off distance a flaw, granted it's part of normal operating conditions for the specific sensor per surface basis. Razer DA4G for example has modified parameters in regardless to such (being lowered), but this merely opened the door for other issues, not exactly well exposed amongst community.
In fact, there are many things that could be consider issues not exactly brought up, but would it help the case any different? People just become more and more picky.

Would still be flawed. Results would be subjective to individual testing.
Objective properties require proper testing machinery, and even then, there might be factors not accounted for when comparing specific models.
With that I agree with:

If you want a mouse that fits you there is no way around educating yourself and finding out what you need specifically then find the mouse that fullfills those needs.
