So would the issue of ambiguity be worth researching.?...maybe I should have put that question in the OP
I won't be wasting my time on it that's for sure. The existence of the photon is needed to explain the most precisely tested theory in physics. If it does not exist then the effect of the difference between it existing and the alternative must be as tiny as the error in the testing of the theory. Hence, we're not going to get anything useful out of it.
