Note that a non-standard canopy, 'landing' feet first in a swimming pool does not help it float, as I found out.
I have crashed more than 1,000 times without a canopy, in a wide variety of ways. I am still flying without a canopy.

I would not suggest something this radical without testing it well first.

At what point do you think my experience might be statistically significant?
