Often when shooting in indoors (Churches at Weddings for instance), you get faces lit by one type of light and the background lit by another. For instance, tungsten on the faces and the congregation lit with daylight. Which ever way you set the white balance - one of the items will be the wrong colour.

I normally white balance for my main subject the faces. I can brush on a warm Temp or Tint on the background of course, but this is done on a scale of 0-100. It would be nicer if one could tweak the image to find the correct white balance for the second part of the image - set that in the Adjustment Brush and then paint it on to the necessary areas.
