It looks rather awful to me. The sun's average density would be anomalously high, and it isn't. Solar seismic wave studies would suddenly be in left field observations vs. theory. Solar core volume with necessary conditions to cause hydrogen fusion would not be available. Solar neutrino emission which has recently been cleaned up vs. theory between Super-Kamiokande (Japan) using water and Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (Canada) using heavy water would be higgledy-piggledy again.
