I guess it should be comforting to know I am not the only one who is confused.

You're definitely not. I actually found a Forbes article that says one thing on the subject in one paragraph then the exact opposite in the next, so even the "big boys" are confused.

for whom the RMD is not large, anyway

Mine isn't either, but I don't need it, so if I can avoid taking it (and paying taxes on it), I'd like to (or at least like to have the option). I normally don't take the RMD until later in the year though, so I imagine things will be clear by then.
