Yes, but without any functions to calculate where the true c.o.m lies, 
the application cannot determine the correct geom/body offset to apply. 
just offsetting the geom doesn't account for any change in the intertia 
tensor. I agree that any solution needs to make sure that existing apps 
don't break.
