Thought I'd give the technique a spin in a bit more practical

The first shot is just shot with preset daylight WB, second WB with
my trusty pink paper (and then WB reset by grey point in PPL3.)
Sunlight, manual exposure (actually the -1 shot of a bracket.)

Could you clarify if you reset WB for both pics by grey point? Only
then they would be comparable, and even then only if you got
exactly the same grey point as WB "anchor". Or asked the other way
round: Was identical color temperature in Kelvin set to both pics
in RAW development?

No and no. Though I don't think that makes them uninteresting to compare. The colors are a bit different, but the degree to which detail is lost to clipping in the red channel is appreciable (although silkypix does a pretty impressive job of faking the clipped red channel.)
