    Well, yeah, since losing a liver means you die.
    You can't let people sell their livers; well, you can, but then you're getting into something a little different.

    The liver can regenerate, so it is possible to donate a portion of it.

    Obviously it is, because the government wants it.

    Perhaps we should try this program on criminals that die in prison.

    Similar to a fetus, who has no will because he's not living yet.
    One has to actually be sucking air, in order to have preferences.
    Wrong.

    He has a will for what he wants done with his body after death, just as he does with his estate.

    At your level of thinking, the state could take all his money, land and personal property because he ceases to be... "sucking air".

    No one in the hospital checks the little check on the person's driver's license. That's just a feel good thing with no bearing on real life. In in the real world the next of kin is approached, and they decide.
    Next of kin are too slow to make the decision. Organs need to be recovered very quickly or they become useless. (except for situations where the dying person is kept on life support for a while but next of kin can already make such a decision then)
