Yes it applies to any change in density but the issue is that a change in one way will not be the same as a change in another. In order to produce a uniform effect you need the density to be changing generally in one direction not the other. That in this case requires an energy density drop and the mechanism given here by what you posted is an expansion.

Also the final two sentences of his paper make it clear that not only does he think there was a big bang but that its expansion is ongoing (That is something inline with the mainstream). His cosmology not only has a big bang but it has an expansion.

It is the combustion of bound forms of
energy to the free form of energy by stars, pulsars, black
holes etc. that powers the expansion. This is to say, the Big
Bang did not happen – it is still going on.

Edit: To clarify he is using the term big bang to refer to an ongoing metric expansion of space-time. Thats what conventional cosmologists think is happening too. When they refer to big bang they tend to be referring to such an effect in the early universe but are not saying there is no ongoing expansion.

One other issue i have though is not only is there a supposed variable speed of light but the deflections etc all seem to be calculated using non General Relativistic methods. He acknowledges results may differ from those obtained via GR but then he will have to account for the myriad effects that are accounted for by GR.
