Are collapsed nuclei, like are discussed in http://prd.aps.org/abstract/PRD/v4/i6/p1601_1" [Broken] still thought to be possible?

A detailed mass measurement of a heavy neutron star has ruled out most exotic typesInteresting. When I googled, I got a google books link that let me look at this book: Neutron stars: Equation of state and structure, P. Haensel, Paweł Haensel, A. Y. Potekhin, D. G. Yakovlev. Apparently Bodmner had two separate types that he hypothesized, one with strangeness and one without. The WP article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strangelet may be helpful. All attempts to detect or produce strangelets have failed.
