I'm certain you'd get a /lot/ of resistance to that!

Apart from anything else, this smacks of coercion. But also, it leads to 
a monoculture, which is always a bad idea.

Better to provide people with as wide a variety of choices as possible 
imo. Let them decide for themselves, let them choose how far to go, 
including nowhere at all, and what types of change to choose.

I'm pretty sure that if/when uploading became possible, it won't lead to 
everyone being the same. Far from it, it would enable an explosion of 
variety that would put the Cambrian to shame.
