Obviously, if you're in an attractive marginal rate, it makes sense to take advantage of the Roth or convert regular IRA money to Roth.

I think the point was, today's marginal rates are probably going to be more attractive than future marginal rates.

Sure, almost certainly. And my point was that it might be REALLY attractive now vs in the future if you're in the range that nearly doubles the marginal rate of withdrawing more IRA money (due to driving Social Security to become 85% taxed) to pay the mortgage.
