Sounds perfectly feasible. You would like to
roll to a Roth at some time, but you must roll to a
regular IRA first in any case.
If your investments are going to do very well indeed, you would rather have paid the tax up front
and then leave that money in the Roth as long as possible. Once you have the money in an IRA, you
might be able to roll part of it each year, paying the
tax from outside the account. Then eventually you
would have your 401K in a Roth.
If the stock market is going to do nothing much this
year, after multiple years of double digit gains, then
you are in no hurry to make the switch into a Roth.
Best wishes, Chris
