...I'm having a hard time seeing how to fit them into the OO paradigm. Here is my problem: I don't see how you can delegate (not literally) actions to different objects, because their actions would have to be bounds-checked. And if they need to be bounds-checked, they need to be bounds-correctable, which would mean friendship. In other words: How can you safely let each object do it's own thing without having to make sure what they do is safe?

Let objects know about the things which contain them.

When the objects are 'doing their own thing', have them ask the containing object for permission, if their location changes. It could be as simple as having each ContainerObject provide a "Location ContainerObject.clampToInterior(Location)" method. (Or possibly a void return type, if your Location type is mutable.)
