(e) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or another person authorized to make an anatomical gift under AS 13.52.173 , an anatomical gift of a part is not a refusal to give another part or a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of another part at a later time by the donor or another person.

(f) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or another person authorized to make an anatomical gift under AS 13.52.173 , an anatomical gift of a part for one or more of the purposes set out in AS 13.52.173 is not a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of the part for any of the other purposes by the donor or any other person under AS 13.52.177 or 13.52.203 .
