Long-term stability, while on the radar, isn't the core problem.
Shitty patient care is. The problem isn't unknown of in health
care, which has mechanisms to deal with it (usually harshly).
Not such in the cryonics business, where dead men tell no tales.

Naively, people think that fixing broken institutions is easy.
Such people will be wrong. This problem is much harder in
cryonics, for multiple reasons. Fixing Alcor might be well
a superhuman job.
