Ben, if you like, then you could basically add a fake patch for RGB [1,1,1], 
but IMO the XYZ numbers of this fake patch should be at least consistent with 
all the other readings in your .ti3 file (within the errror margins).

I.e. the question is: Which (absolute) XYZ color would the patch need to have, 
in order that camera + raw converter would return non-clipped RGB of [1,1,1] ?

These are the XYZ numbers then, which you put into the WHT row.

Estimating the XYZ for instance with an -aG matrix model gives me:

   colprof -aG TrumpetChart-aG     (original .ti3 w/o fake patches)

   xicclu -ia -ff -px TrumpetChart-aG.icc
   1 1 1
   1.000000 1.000000 1.000000 [RGB] -> MatrixFwd -> 1.026545 1.052019 0.889471 

which would lead us to

   WHT 102.6545 105.2019 88.9471 100 100 100 0 0 0
