That's the whole point of RAW, though.  It captures exactly what the 
camera sees with no processing whatever.  If you have a whole group 
of hots with the same lighting, you can open them all at the same 
time in Adobe Camera RAW and apply whatever white balance you want.

I can see that if you were photographing a whole card with the same 
light, it might be easier to do a custom white balance to start with, 
but you lose absolutely nothing by shooting in RAW and balancing 
later.  It's much better to do it that way if your light is changing 
a lot.  Bruce Fraser has a really good book out that covers all of 
this - Adobe Camera Raw for CS2.
