Well, that's something I had not thought of before. But your selling it wrong. Your condemning organ donors over non donors... Though I understand the logic behind it... Still... That might make some change ideas about organs donation.
As for the rest, I'll send you a PM so as to not derail the thread.
I think you are asking the wrong question because the scenario of two different people having the exact same transplant requirements at the exact same time is probably impossible.

Practically speaking, it doesn't make much sense. People who need organs are usually not in a position to donate. They're too sick or too old. Their bodies are compromise. You want to make decisions based on your philosophical stance. That's ethically questionable right there.
From the OP
Now yes I know that for some people due to their specific condition they may just have never been able to get on the donor register and yes I also know that Medical need should come first.
I also expand on it further.
Not wanting to sound argumentative but I do wonder if the people posting this are responding to the title or the OP.

Doctors and medical services should not discriminate who they help.
After all i think somewhere in the Hippocratic Oath it states "I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment".
