But some folks, me included, have a lot of retirement savings in taxable accounts, and so anything that comes out of selling stock from those accounts is taxed at more favorable capital gains rates.

Don't qualified dividends (dividends from stock held more than a year) have a much lower rate as well? Big advantage if you're living off a dividend stream of income.
