Tomaz - I built my own Jordan and can confirm that a tripping line inside the cones wouldn't work. I have 132 of them any twist at all would make that idea untenable, although it would be nice to have an easy retrieve. Float, as mentioned earlier, aren't the way to go since there is supposed to be a heavy weight at the end (an anchor or the like) plus you want the drogue to be below the level of any white water. If the floats are attached with lines then one is back into the entanglement scenario again.
