Transplanting your head would also qualify as death, by many different standards... I'm pretty sure. At the very least, such a procedure would stop "your" heart. That's either homicide or assisted suicide, depending on your locale.

It is kind of interesting to think about how that line might blur over time, though... just how much of what can you transplant before they consider you "dead"?
