I also doubt whether the posthumous preservation of one's body has anything to do with his sanctity.

Why? Have you seen St. Catherine Laboure's hands? They're perfectly preserved. How do you explain it?

There have been incorrupt saints who after a while were no longer incorrupt. Presumably this is part of God's plan, just like keeping them incorrupt in the first place was. Miracles don't come with a promise to stick around forever, and God can take away favors out of punishment for sin or because of a lack of faith.

I thought it was common knowledge, too, that many of them have masks. If you read the book The Incorruptibles it will usually tell you, I think.
