UNOS proposal: Allowing Deceased Donor-Initiated Kidney Paired Donation (KPD) Chains

Earlier I posted about our 2016 paper proposing that some kidney exchange nondirected donor chains be started with deceased donor kidneys.
Melcher, Marc L., John P. Roberts, Alan B. Leichtman, Alvin E. Roth, and Michael A. Rees, “Utilization of Deceased Donor Kidneys to Initiate Living Donor Chains,” American Journal of Transplantation, 16, 5, May 2016, 1367–1370. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/ajt.13740/full

Now UNOS has put out a proposal for public comment.  Here's the proposal
