Does anyone have reason to believe that there might be a modification of that 60 day rule under the CAREs Act for those of us who, as of now, are "SOL" for having taken their 2020 RMD in January?

I doubt it, but you could always suggest it to your Congressperson, to be included in the next bailout bill. That said, I doubt there will be much empathy for someone who took their RMD out before the market crashed.

Any historical precedent?

There's no historical precedent for waiving RMDs during the year they would been taken, even though RMDs have been waived before. For 2009, RMDs were waived, but that law was signed in Dec, 2008, so the waiver was in place prior to the beginning of the year in which the RMD would have been taken.
