Subject: cryonics loopholes

In a message dated 6/2/00 2:02:54 AM Pacific Daylight Time, 

 Canada has some cemetaries located in "permafrost", though such storage at
 near freezing temperatures is by itself of little use for cryonics
 purposes. >>

Hi !   Thanks for your comments.   
I just wanted to clarify by my post I'm not talking about alternatives to 
cryonics, but ways of getting around legal loopholes.     Anotherwords, by my 
comments I wasn't refering to permafrost burial (or other methods which have 
popped up now again) but ways of doing cryonics that meet legal loopholes.    
  For example if a cryostat is technically stored "underground" or in a 
"family vault" in such countries that require burial, could that meet the 
legal definition of burial ?   If the country requires cremation, but bodies 
may be donated for scientific reasearch, can that beat the loophole ?     Are 
there countries in which cryonics is technically illegal, but if its done as 
a method of "embalming", could that bypass the loophole ?
