You do have a point. I wish very much that this situation were remedied. 
There is a lot that can be said (and hopefully *done*) on this subject, and 
it goes beyond "conventional wisdom" both in and outside cryonics. (As a 
start, I say some things in my book ... .) I guess my suggestion at this 
point is at least to keep the discussion going, and there are a few things 
that can be done now or relatively easily arranged, such as storage of 
records and cell samples.
