This looks feasible. It protects you from an accitental nano-catastrophe, and from human-designed malicious nanotech. It won't protect you from an SI that is determined to get you, but neither will anything else, except becoming your own personal SI. You now have to hope that you can acquire competent nanotech and implement your plan after it's invented but before the catastrophe. Do you have a strategy for that?
