I don't fully understand the ramifications of exceeding the limit if you are going to be under the $11M threshold. I know that if you are going to be over that, the additional amount reduces that threshold.
The ramifications are mainly filing paperwork. Yes, it reduces the estate exemption. But it’s just paperwork if your estate is below that exemption.

Retired since summer 1999.

Note the current pending legislation described here:

RMD going to 72?

Assuming that some version of the bill changing RMD age and the limitation on stretch tIRA's passes, that fact might significantly change the tax effects of inheriting a tIRA.
