Perhaps this effect will be shown to sidestep relativity theory, since it
happens outside the realm of physics that existed when the theory was
formulated? It would not be the first time that a physical theory got
modified by real world experiments.

I have a gut feeling (not being either a physicist or a mathematician) that
there are many laws out there that we have not yet encountered. Relativity
explains many effects nicely, but so did Newton until Einstein and friends
showed up.
