Doesn't the rollover have to be done before the end of 2011 to go on the 2011 tax forms?

A rollover can begin in one tax year and be completed in the next as long as it's within the 60-day window. However, we weren't talking about rollovers, we were talking about conversions. Conversions are taxable in the year they begin.
