It opens up several issues. Can we say that neutrinos have a meaningful
interaction such that dielectric constant for instance is relevant. What
if the speed of light is relevant only as a interaction slowed down
variant of the speed of particles, where neutrinos has higher speed due
to less interactions.
What if neutrinos only have apparent mass?
If the experiment checks out in all its aspects, it could prove
important to re-evaluate results and we might get a better view of what
needs to go into a GUT.
When studying the electron, don't forget to integrate over the
surrounding universe to understand it's properties (as Feynman did in
his early works). It has it's properties in context of the universe,
which it constantly interacts with.
In short, neutrinos may still have a few important things to teach us.
