In CryoNet #16698, Robert Moore proposes this survey:

Me, for one.  I'm fully aware that my body would have already 
decomposed far beyond the level that would have occurred had I 
been frozen in a timely manner.  Full revival, however, is not 
the only good reason for preserving information about the past.  

Future historians, and perhaps a few decendants, might well 
appreciate the extra details that can be gleaned from a body.  
For me, grabbing what little there is to grab also acts as a 
statement of who I am and what I believe.  Consider it an 
artistic or even religious expression, if you must, but as 
long as the cost does not impose too great of a burden on my 
family, please preserve whatever bits you might happen to find.
