It's a nice idea, but one that requires changing every object.  In
practice, heavy thing sink so it's a way to emulate sinking using what we

This sounds like it will be an optional thing for people who like it. 
Therefore it'll be easy to change it to fit your implementation if you wish
to use density. 

(Unless we find a palatable way to avoid losing lots of objects that is.)
