Thanks, read the Kitces article and will probably read a few more times and wait and see a little before acting.

In my particular case, while an after-tax 401k is more flexible than the Roth, I have a pretty decent non tax advantaged nest egg that serves for my flexibility. Continuing to contribute to the 401k, contribution limits on the pre-tax/Roth component + employer match leads to a different asset allocation than I would like. I've been converting my traditional IRA outside the 401k to Roth, doing backdoor Roth, and converting within the 401k as funds allow to handle the taxes. But the potential tax change has me thinking of converting at least enough of the after-tax 401k to fill up my tax bracket.

After tax 401k contributions will continue in 2022 and beyond, but conversion seems like that option will be gone for that bucket. So I'll be working on converting pre-tax dollars in 2022 and beyond.
