Is the overall container to put the body in covered in the list?  What about the transport?

By the way, in Stanislaw Lem's novel _Fiasco_, one of the main characters is cryopreserved quickly in a portable unit.  It's a sort of last ditch effort when you know you're about to die, you can either die or put yourself in the unit.  Has anyone worked along those lines?
