I wonder if the politicians in charge and the bureaucrats who'd manage it have considered something:
Sooner or later, someone is going to be told "Yes, you mother/father/wife/husband needs this surgery, but since they're 69 they're past the age at which the formula allows them to have it. So they'll be given medication instead" and is going to react. Badly. And since it's the bureaucrat telling them "They're going to die and get out of the way, but we'll make them comfortable" it'll probably be the bureaucrat who winds up bleeding.
Or, quite possibly, it'll be one of the politicians who assured us "This is a wonderful plan, now shut up and take the medicine you're told to" who winds up, ah, suffering. And the potential from there is for things to become very interesting for a lot of bureaucrats and politicians.
