If the wallwart gives a voltage that accurate you don't need the 7805 at
all. In practice you will - even with a perfectly choosen wallwart -
have to compensate for
- tolerances in the primary voltage (may vary from country to country!)
- tolerances in the tranformation factor
- tolerances in the diode voltage drops
- ripple on the buffer elco

I dunno what the rule of thumb is, but I would guess this asks for a
factor 1.5 between lowest and highest input to the 7805 (in addition to
the drop voltage).
