This idea has been considered at least once or twice before... at least in theory.
The basic idea is that the speed of light is still indeed a constant, but a relative one that may depend on the overall size or density of the known
universe. At the moment of the "big bang" when the universe was small, the speed of light may have been infinite, or nearly infinite. Over time, the
speed slowed down as the universe expands.
This is somewhat related to a time theory in that the "speed" of time also depends on factors determined by the size or density of the actual
universe. As the universe expands, time slows.
As I understand these concepts, they don't much effect relativistic theories, only the value used for the speed of light.
