It was a DGP Traveller's Digest article that brought us grav based cold berths.

So, probably not 'official cannon', anyway.
"Traveller canon excludes articles published in Journal of the Travellers Aid Society, Challenge, and Travellers' Digest magazines, unless the articles have been re-published in another canon source. " - http://traveller.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Canon
Though I wouldn't be surprised such didn't show up in other publications.

At any rate - using gravitics for low-berths seems rather silly, but its all fiction. For my part, I'll stick to things a lot more believable on this one, especially as I have a useful bit of fluff developed already for my games.

And the OP's Cyrostatic Surgery concept fits well with it (just gotta makeup some game mechanics...)

I wouldn't take that wiki definition of canon as canon, since there are an awful lot of JTAS and Challenge articles that are considered canonical

Well, not to defend, support, or otherwise endorse the grav-lowberth paradigm but Starship Operators Manual might have touched on the same tech iirc
