I'm working on a similar problem now with a price comparison website
I'm working on.  Their SEO dept have advised to go down the copy route
as what Google perceives as navigation is given a far greater
weighting in PageRank than copy.

So I agree with Tim, if the keyword density needs to be reduced do it
in the copy.  Also replacing the nav with images is gonna be a 'mare
to keep up to date.
