"What are the criteria for making educated guesses about timescales for 
reanimation (or any projected scientific/technical achievement)?"
I assume that about as soon as nanotechnology is available, reanimation
will be possible.  I also assume that nanotechnology will be possible as
soon as computer chips are built with transistors on the molecular scales.
I also assume that computer chips will continue to shrink transistor size
at the same rate they have since 1967.  Based on this I would guess 40 
years for both nanotechnology and reanimation to be here.
