Do cryonics organizations have anything they need to keep secret other
than the names of those members who want their identites kept secret?

I'm aware that Alcor keeps some of their procedures secret so they can
compete more effectively, but that doesn't seem incredibly important to me.

If the identities of the closet cryonicists are the only important
secrets, then worrying about secrecy is kind of pointless.  One
could discover who they are by simply stealing some mail when Alcor
sends out bills.

It seems to me that secrecy usually conceals some sort of sloppy
behavior.  I think organizations in general do not benefit from having
much secrecy.
