Ok, here are two histograms from the same white target in (almost)
the same light:

I'm a little bit concerned about the use of the word 'almost' there, but still, the evidence is strong... So, once again, I'm going to change my stance...

The first is shot with custom WB off the white target itself.

The second is shot with custom WB off a purpleish-pink target.

Setting the WB balance with more extreme targets like this seems like a good idea for these testing purposes. I considered doing something like that, it's the time that would be spent booting into windows to run the software that's stopped me testing for myself.
