You keep saying "precision", but what you really seem to mean is "convenient." Graphic EQs are not as precise as parametrics and they can't be because they have fixed frequencies and bandwidths, so their precision is inherently limited. As Raphie said, they're great for live applications (although, I still preferred using a parametric EQ on the foldback monitors when I was doing live sound for precise control/elimination of feedback).

Oh...and did I mention that it's easier to raise faders than having to create a band and drag it vertically and horizontally...
Think about it George, that's a good argument.
Most parametric EQs have separate frequency, Q, and gain knobs, so you can cut/boost each frequency using just the gain knob without affecting the others.
The bigger issue here, though, is that you make it sound like using a parametric EQ is some difficult, time-consuming task that requires pinpoint precision. It's really not. But, if you just like the idea of using a graphic EQ on the master bus, don't let us stop you. People do all sorts of unorthodox things to their mixes and get good results.
