Well the heatsink would obviously be considerably heavier than a fan, so it would take some more power. Probably not too much, but still a thing to put into consideration.

Newton's second law of motion:

Quote
The acceleration a of a body is parallel and directly proportional to the net force F acting on the body, is in the direction of the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass m of the body, i.e., F = ma.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton's_laws_of_motion

The heavier heatsink would only require more force to spin when it's accelerating. Once it's spinning at top speed, the weight is not of significant importance.
Heheh, Made me think of people "kickstarting" thier impellers

I'm curious about startup. It has to be spinning to produce the air cushion, and is otherwise touching in contact right?

Man makes a good point...
I think they leave a Tiiiiiny gap to allow room for it to spin up and create it's aircushion, But.. At the same time if it does that, It could become Very dust vulnerable...
