If the standard governing the exercise of a lifetime or a testamentary power of appointment
does not clearly indicate that a broader or more restrictive power of appointment
is intended, the holder of the power of appointment may exercise it in his or her
favor only for his or her health, education, support, or maintenance as described
in section 2041 1 or 2514 [FN2] of the Internal Revenue Code and the applicable regulations adopted under the section.
