Ok let me give u an example, Krista, her soul was sucked out, modified, then pushed into the bones for what 200 years? and those bones were transported back to MV in Richters bag of holding. Thus transporting the soul in the bag, in the remains(just the bones in this case, probably not even the full bones). Another example of Soul transportation is the soul coin. The soul stones... Handed the bloodStone would not be a great candidate for bag of holding. Still I see bags of holing like a container, which has the body/bones as another container for the soul, that either preserves the soul or upon casting a spell works as an ingredient to suck the soul back to this dimension... Or you only need the fresh remains to rezz.. otherwise whats the point? say dude dies... why his soul has to travel anywhere??? I say it stays with the body. It most def stays if the dude was pissed @ time of death. Remember the Crypt mistress and the Tefonim Queen, the queens soul was stuck in her tomb for what 1000 years? I bet If I had transported the bones to another location and cast commune with the dead it would work. soul is not bound to a place, but to the remains, As Sumiko said about the bones of the ones in the cave of Dark aberration. I must put their souls to rest, they are uneasy.. Rememeber what happened when Then after taking those bones from Richters bag of holding Beyan casted commune with the dead? Still super easy to test by what? Put a dead bugbear/kobod/gobo in the bag of holding, (alive,dead, frozen..) Then take them out few days later and cast commune with the dead.. if communio works(which already did with dark aberration cave victims dead 500-2k years age) you can rezz too if not try some more. Worst case, if you try to rezz Clauder, and it fails then at least you still should the the ingredients for that spell unused and get an informative prompt about needing a better soul stone to contain human soul... in this way you could become immortal quite easily or at least ensure you're closest companions would not easily perish.
