This is actually an interesting discussion. Some in our community are 
forging ahead with using biometrics in lieu of passwords or even 
physical keys. What happens to all of this when you're dead? How do you 
open a biometric-secured safe deposit box, or access that Swiss Bank 
account of someone who's dead and no longer "biometrically-active"?

Interesting times...
