Air travel restrictions

Discovered in the course of pre-travel research (emphasis added):
American may refuse to transport you, or may remove you from your flight at any point, for one or several reasons, including but not limited to the following: ...Your conduct is disorderly, abusive or violent, or you... have an offensive odor not caused by a disability or illness, ... - American Airlines' "Conditions of Carriage"
Air Canada's website generously allows that "urns containing human remains... can be carried on and do not count towards your baggage allowance." No other airlines explicitly discuss the transport of human remains as carry-on. Does Air Canada see this a lot? Do Canadians fly with urns of human ashes more frequently than others?

This post's theme song is "Secret Asian Man" by Da Vinci's Notebook.
