Default J1 research visa help

I was recently granted J1 research visa with the 2 year home residence rule applied
Is that a common occurrence? I was under the impression that in the research category the 2 year rule is not really applied, so is it worth talking to the embassy about it?

Secondly, if i decide not to avail the visa, would that reflect adversely on my passport later in life? Would that create difficulties in obtaining a J1 for residency for example?

Third if I do avail the visa will I have problems switching from J1 research to J1 clinical?
