"When dealing with estate taxes what is typically at stake is a family-owned business and/or capital/stock [blah blah blah]

What's typically at stake is nothing, unless you are one of the 5,500/350,000,000 Americans who was lucky enough to be born very wealthy, on third base.
Those poor, poor very rich trust funders with parents stupid enough not to have taken advantage of the thousands of loopholes in our tax system designed to benefit them might have to give up a small portion of the vast wealth they inherited for doing nothing. Cry me a river.
