Does punctuation added later skew the original meaning of a work?

Kayley brought up an interesting point with commentary on Eats, Shoots and Leaves. Besides pondering what Kayley wrote herself, it made me think that if the Bible started out without any punctuation at all in it (as Truss tells us it did), then the punctuation was added by other people.  How do we know these people added punctuation at the right places?  Truss already showed us the difference even one comma can make in a sentence.  It’s almost scary the power punctuation has over our lives.
