If you have other assets than the IRA, for example if your IRA is half your portfolio, then it can very much, overall, look like a SWR as the withdrawals ratchet up to 5% or more in your 90s.

Or it might not, if your IRA comprises 30% of your portfolio, or if you're in your 70s, or many other portfolio/age combinations. Just because RMDs from a particular portfolio coincidentally resemble the SWR at some particular age(s) doesn't mean that there is any mathematical link between them. Your tireless attempts to link the two are pointless, because there ISN'T a link.
