My Grizzly bandsaw has a motor break that stops the blade within 3 seconds. If that was also added (to the arbor) it could help stop the blade. I know that 3 seconds is a long time in an accident, but a motor brake, arbor brake and dropping the arbor would provide 3 points of safety.

I thought I heard somewhere that the guy who invented the stop saw method had a umbrella patent that would cover any emergency stop / safety mechanism.

From Jay’s comment I assume there is a quick way to disengage the raise / lower blade mechanism.
