Yes, this is a potentially annoying limitation of the current scheme.

Note that it's not obvious how to proceed for resizable objects such as lists. Should the list inform the GC of every internal resizing? May a list resize trigger a GC run?

Also, a small container may keep alive a large non-GC object (think a 2-element list containing itself and a 1 GB bytestring).  How will the GC know?
