I believe the reason it is referred to as "white balance" is not because of the source, as Bob says -- you can use any neutral source, and grey cards are an excellent source because they are certified to be grey and nothing else -- but because the intended whites are where colour casting is most obvious. Our eyes do not see as much differentiation in the shadows, but in the highlights if things are just 1 or 2% off of neutral, it can make the entire scene appear tinted. Thus, the whites are most important in colour correction, and in video and digital photography. If our eyes were more sensitive to shadows somehow, we would doubtlessly refer to the process as "black balance" but we would probably still use grey cards.
