Sorry, I missed the reference to a whole step 5th. I'm still new to a 5 valve instrument, having played 4 valvers for almost 34 years.
Playing exactly in tune is a noble idea, however, it doesn't happen very often. Playing a hair flat in the very low range will, in my experience, cause others to be able to play in tune with you. Playing sharp causes the entire group to sound out of tune. This is just an observation.
