I don't think the water is drawing off bad stuff so much as creating the conditions in which the enzyme phytase is activated which in turn deactivates the anti-nutrient phytic acid. I believe the phytic acid is converted into something else, not just moved from the grain to the water. I could be wrong, but I don't think it's necessary to rinse the grain unless it's quinoa, which has saponins that need removing.
