Sort of.  Adding an extra field 'bulk' allows the modelling of large but
light objects such as a large sac full of feathers.  Simply placing bulk
limits on inventories and containers, similar to the weight limits is
probably what you want.

If you just want to avoid the problem of massive amounts of light objects
like potions, scrolls, and wands being carried about, and were fairly
mean, you could add a 'fragility' field that would cause the potions, &c.
to break and be destroyed if they were jostled about...say being in the
backpack of someone doing something strenuous, like fighting.
