Am I missing something?? Why not roll it to a Roth IRA in steps? Pay income tax today and shield future earnings/gains?

I have been using 72t distributions since 2006 thru Schwab, using the annual recalc/minimum distribution method (currently resulting in about a 3% distribution of last Dec 31 balance). No problems with Schwab or the IRS. I log on to Schwab, download the very simple form, fill it out, mail it in, and a couple days later the $$ moves from my IRA to my regular stock account. I use a simple spreadsheet to calculate the amount to withdraw every year.
