It makes sense on two levels:
-During my lifetime, my Full Retirement Age changed from 65 to 67 to reflect increased longevity. (True or not, that's the stated reason.) Why shouldn't RMDs be subjected to the same logic?
-What the heck is it with these half-birthdays? Let's let stuff make more sense and apply to your real age, not half year after.
