Couldn't the white balance just be adjusted to a cooler temperture to
get the colors right? Or would this simply compound the problem of
emphasizing one channell against others?


If the blue channel level is already low, or the red channel blown, all adjusting the WB does is bring up noise in the shadows, and turn the blown highlights strange colors.

The 80A filter balances the channel so you don't have a blown red one or an unusually noisy blue one.
