If a trustee determines that an allocation between principal and income required by section 7-449, 7-450, 7-451, 7-452 or 7-455 is insubstantial, the trustee may allocate the entire amount to principal unless one of the circumstances described in section 7-404, subsection 3 applies to the allocation.
