Subject: How to draft a will so that it does not interfere with cryonics?

What is the standard boilerplate to put in a will so that it will
not interfere with cryonic preservation?

I am not signed up yet, but i would like to draft a will.  I want to
do it in such a way that it does not later interfere with
my cryonic preservation.  (Thus, for example, i wouldn't want to
put anything in the will which would create evidence that i wanted
to be buried, because, naturally, i don't.  Nevertheless, wills
typically include some provision about disposal of the body.)

I am _not_ trying to finance my preservation out of my estate, as
that seems quite risky, just trying to draft a will.

I'm keenly aware that it would be best to sign up with a cryonics
organization before drafting a will, but for various reasons i can't
do that right now.

Are there any cryonics-friendly model wills posted?  What about
cryonics-friendly wills that have withstood challenge?
