Thanks Nick for the prompt to look at [R] kdensity.  This contains a Technical Note confirming that density may exceed 1 because it is in units that are the reciprocal of the range variable.  However, I've always used density function as a synonym of probability density function (pdf) and not thought of the generalization.
