I think this is positively mandatory. For a simulation to be effective
it must meet expectations, especially for kids who have real black and
white views of the world. It might open their eyes to other
possibilities to have the ability to turn collisions on and off, but it
would be so disconcerting to some that you would lose them completely.
As I think of others, that would apply to lots of adults as well, maybe
more so because they have already learned certain expectations from
objects in their experience.
