Mr. K can take payments from his 401K under 72(t), and is not limited to just contributions. Mr. Roth has no way to access Roth earnings tax-free before 59.5 years-of-age.

FYI, for 401(k)s, if you leave the service of the employer where you have the account in the year that you turn 55 or older, you don't even have to do 72(t) to avoid the 10% penalty.
