"paper" insulation has been around for decades

Cellulose insulation has been around for decades and treated with a fire retardent, it seems effective. I own an little rental with this type of blown in insulation, and it seems quite effective. When taking down some drywall in the kitchen to add ground fault style wiring, I noticed a little, but not much settlement. This is one type of insulation that was often added to older, previously uninsulated construction and was blown in through holes drilled in exterior walls. The holes were plugged with round little dimpled plugs - most unattractive - but really good insulation. If you are worried about fire hazard, probably should not build with wood at all since wood is cellulose.
