You've definitely done more research on this, but these were some of my thoughts.
The spine is necessary if you have muscle memory skills like playing the piano, martial arts, something of that nature where your muscles are trained to respond without thought. Many people wouldn't miss it, but it's something to consider which I never see in the literature.
I thought the vitrification process was highly experimental at best. Now I don't really know what's involved and haven't looked into it. I suppose I should do so before signing up with anyone.
The other points I liked about CI which brought costs down were that they used mortuary-level sterilization, not hospital level sterilization, and the fact that they own the land on which they built their business unlike Alcor. I have never heard of their less conservative assumptions and would be interested to know more.
For the non-scientist, it's a lot of work to check out the backgrounds and mailings lists for key information to make the decision. And everyone seems to be biased. But thanks for the input!
