I feel that sometimes I need some user presets for WB. Sometimes the cloudy WB is not correct for my taste -sometimes I find too warm, sometimes OK- specially in some cameras. Also, if you use auto WB option, the warm-golden colors of the sunrise/sunset is lost and maybe you only need to maintain the warm colors and balance the green-magenta of the image. Coulb be possible to add this option in the future?

Are you finding the application of custom WB settings from general Develop presets area insufficient?

Personally, I usually don't use anything besides As Shot and Custom from the WB list.

You can create white balance presets, like any other preset (just omit all except white-balance). Does that not do essentially what you want? I mean, white balance temp/tint values for all white balance presets (like "cloudy") are just hard-coded, are you wanting another set of (slightly different) hard-coded values? if so, the previous comment applies (granted, such preset selection will not reflect a proper wb name, but will just say "custom", but the preset name will be reflected in edit-history...). If what you are wanting is some different wb intelligence, then do tell...
