One reason for replacing age 70½ with age 72 was simplification, because of how confusing it can be to work with the half-year. What you’ve written looks right to me. The result isn’t surprising: when they increase the applicable age by a year and a half, there has to be a “skip” year in which no one has a required beginning date.
