Sounds to me it is important only if you use the color histograms a lot to adjust exposure. The color histogram reflects the distribution of each channel after the white balance is applied. The "UniWB" white balance setting will make the white balance a non-operation, that is, the pixel values are not adjusted by the white balance. I guess your preview will look off-color, but the net result is that the histograms will correspond much more closely to the distribution of color values in the raw data.

Very interesting, but I have to admit that I'm still too much of an amateur to pay a lot of attention to the histogram. For me the "blinkies" are good enough. There are a lot of other aspects of my technique I'll have to work on first :-).
