I am very sorry Marc, but it is not always so easy. How would you set a white balance of a yellow flower on green grass, without any grey patch to obtain the WB multipliers from?
Is this happening on earth, or some other planet? If on earth, then the usual presets should work fine, as should AWB. Depends on yours goals, though. If your intent is to lie about the scene by completely removing the very real color of the light, then a custom wb can be useful. Still, taking a simple shot of a gray card then doing the adjustment in pp will still be faster than working the buttons in the camera.

Hehe... I think we have a clear case of misunderstanding . This is exactly what I had in mind when I wrote about setting a white balance.

In short: I do fully agree with you, Marc!
