Perhaps there's a reason this line concerns minor characters off-screen, Sun Folk in the palace -- as opposed to Leetah, Shenshen, Rayek, Ahdri, Savah, etc. The Whitening, if it even shows up, could be presented negatively in the course of the story, as a symbolic loss. Maybe it illustrates the Palace's control over the elves, and its willingness to muck with them, acting on its own mysterious notions of consent and purity -- and the willingness of some to give themselves up to it. Maybe the palace is a NAZI.
