Are colored slate sticks any good for color balance reference?

No they are not enough. You should always shoot a Gray Scale/ Color Chart (alone) with proper exposure to insure correct timing interpretation..
What do you mean by properly exposed? I thought the whole idea of having the card in the shot was to have a reference so when color correcting to match different takes and angles in the same scene you would have a standard reference, i.e. match the cards and the shots will match. Now if you shoot the card alone and "properly exposed" and properly exposed means let's say a T2.8 but you are shooting the shot at T4 how good of a reference is the card going to be?
Also, why shoot it alone? Most people even stick it to the slate or hold it in front of the talent before rolling camera.
What am I missing? This is a honest question. I'm not trying to flame or anything.

Those 'tweaks' are usually based on Skin Tones.. not Charts..
