You seem to be talking about a reference counting implementation. These
have several problems. Inneficiency, counter overflow, circular lists don't
get reclaimed  and space added to each object.

You might be interested in the Baker four color algorithm who's problems
are space added to each object and poor behavior in threaded applications.
