I would look to the measurements to make the judgement. If toe wasn't obviously the problem then I would also look to bushing play. Alignment specs are there for the technician to set a car so that it will be right on the road where it can't be measured. If it has extra play then a different spec would be needed or the play repaired. Obviously fixing the play is the way.

A good alignment tech will use the tire wear, the specs, and whats there to adjust to the situation. Or he will tell you to fix it and bring it back.
