One feature of the Roth that I would expect to be eliminated is the ability for someone other than a spouse to inherit the Roth and keep the money in a Roth.

I'm not saying that it would be taxed; just that a final tax free withdrawal would have to be made when the money is sent to whoever inherits it.

This would eliminate the so call stretch Roth IRA.
