Have you tried to approximate D5100's Factory White balance settings to kelvin values?
As you probably know, D5100 doesn't offer Kelvin scale for white balance. But it does offer presets, with fine tuning. Maybe it's possible to relate Kelvin values to (for instance) a certain preset WB, eventually fine tuned? Something like 3200K = Incandescent tuned 2B, 1G.
I'm writting this mostly because of my curiosity. I rarely use factory WB presets. I mainly use auto WB for "quick" shots (eventually with WB compensation), or gray card measure for "slow" shots.
