I was assuming and didn't state that the expectation that he would live until at least 2011.

By which time I think there will be additional changes to the estate tax. The good news for A is that if he dies next year there's no estate tax, IIRC, and by the end of 2010 the dust should settle on what the law will be going forward. Conventional wisdom says that it will be about $3 to 3.5 million, but we all know how conventional wisdom works out.
