I believe organ donor status should somehow be encrypted and held in a very secure place -- somewhere that is not accessible to anyone until AFTER one is dead.
By the time an executor has been appointed and everything goes through probate, the deceased will long since have been cremated. Or, ahem, not-- which is equally useless for organ-donation purposes.
Q: What is the one essential document that should never, ever be kept in a safe-deposit box?
