I recommend it for some celebrities. I just pointed out a week and a half ago that Michael Jackson might have been happier if he had died at the end of the 80's... I'm NOT saying he should have, just that if he could have seen then what a hash his life would become in the next 20 years, it might have appeared to him to be an attractive choice. Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and on... these people have so lost touch with reality that they need to be protected from themselves and society, and society needs to be protected from them.
If you're not convinced, consider this: Michael Jackson Wants to Be Plastinated. Money quote from the linked article: "Bild speculated that Jackson's nose, which has famously received a series of surgical interventions, was already plastinated enough to not require any further work." (The link in the quote goes to Bild.com, which appears to be a German entertainment tabloid, and the source of much of the Der Spiegel report. The article there is in English.)
