I have to admit, I hadn't realized there are so many, but it does
seem to me you've overstated a bit:


Should having died and been resurrected be considered in the same
category as being dead throughout the story?

I would tend to doubt this, though I could be wrong.

The protagonist dies in the course of the story, so perhaps
again shouldn't be in the same category.

> 9. "Peritonitis"

It's not exactly the hero who's dead here.

I'd say the latter, since it is a living man impersonating a
dead man.
