You can also design a part to be 'tool-safe' ... so you can remove material from the mold in key areas to adjust the fit, as it's harder to add material to a mold once it's been removed.

It is up to the tooling designer to determine shrinkage (which I hear is quite significant when coming out of a pool) to hit the critical dims. I don't worry them doing their job. And of course, shrinkage is material specific.
