The context of our discussion was good light. Definitions befitting said context:

grade of excellence

superiority in kind

No, the context was color cast, and the first definition of quality applies to that. You are choosing to conflate the second definition of quality with WB (and as it turns out, color profile) choices. Nonetheless, as Iliah pointed out, starting out with light that is not close to 5500K is indeed starting out with lesser quality light.
