It seems to destroy any notion of "conscious agents" since agency is then dissipated far and wide and there are no individuals that could count as "conscious agents" making their own individual free decisions.

Yes, it would mean all that.

It might even disallow the word 'individual' too, apart from that term being an approximation, not entirely unanalagous (in some ways) to it being like the centre of gravity of some irregularly-shaped object.
