What do y'all think?

I offer no opinion of the investment strategy. You have no tax problems.

A clarification on your statement about the wash sale rules. There's no specific exemption of retirement accounts from the rules, but they're moot for sales in a retirement account since gains/losses don't matter from a tax perspective. However, if you sell for a loss in a taxable account, the wash sale rule applies if you buy replacement shares in a retirement account, as we recently discussed.
