I may be misinterpreting here, but personally, I'd just add a
"weight" attribute to everything to limit it.

Another thought is to make this a premium option. You want this,
okay, but you'll have to cough up dough. =P Granted, it's pretty
illusion-breaking option and all that jive, but it's an option.

I'd probably give a better response if my mind weren't in overdrive
and multithreading everything, but I hope the bit I've typed can
spark something useful. =)
