You dont win the point because you didnt do anything to win the point. The opponents made a honest mistake and there is no penalty anywhere in the Code for making honest mistakes. (it assumes that everyone is honest and fair, etc....)
Yes, we did do something to win the point: My partner hit a ball that landed in the court.
I guess what's weird is that if our two opponents didn't get a good look at the ball, they have two choices: Call it good, or ask our opinion if they don't know. In either case, we would get the point.
And yes, there are plenty of penalties in the Code for "honest mistakes" (e.g. hitting a ball on wrong side of net, touching the net, double-hit, footfaults, hindrance . . . .).
