If you have ever looked at the curves for the 4% SWR, and the projected growth, then eventual decline of a 'typical' 30 year survival,....

I don't know what you mean by the "typical" decline, but using the Shiller database (1871-2002) more than 85% of the time a retiree limiting his withdrawals to 4% ends the 30-year payout period with more money than he started with.
