Until the advent of § 1446, 1446's main claim to fame may have been that it was the year that Blarney Castle in its current incarnation was built in Cork, Ireland. There seems to be a mystical connection here. Certainly, the interminable § 1446 regulations, and especially the ponderous temporary regulations in Regs. § 1.1446-6T, lead one to believe that the drafters had visited the castle, more than once, where the Blarney Stone is said to confer the gift of the gab on those who kiss it (while hanging backward off a parapet).
