So relativistic quantum theory refines or amends Newton mechanics. Are you suggesting that we should amend the RDM? Please note that quantum theory does not NULLIFY the validity of Newton mechanics, and actually builds on it. It's like negative integers, rational and real numbers actually building ontop of the foundation of positive integers instead of claiming that they are useless.

So to complete the analogy, you should give us suggessions on how to add to, or refine the relational theory, but instead you are giving us alternatives. Einstein did not give us an alternative to Newtonian machanics, he refined or ammended it.
