 c) he thinks something else better will be available later
    either from Alcor or a derivative organization

Making arrangements with Alcor costs much less than being frozen by
Alcor.  If Durk signed up with Alcor, and then something better came
up, then Durk would only lose his $300 sign-up fee and $200/year
during the time he was signed up.  He would be able to keep the life
insurance or trust fund he set up for paying for his Alcor suspension
and use it for whatever better thing came up, assuming he didn't die

If he did die before something better came around, then the cryonics
arrangements would be a big win.
