The fundamental unit of magnetism is (has to be) spacetime itself, time being the most important differentiator. I think there's a problem when we give the speed of 300Kk/s to the particle of light versus giving it to the field in which it travels. The specific frequency of that field has a sign posted: Speed Limit X, so it makes sense to me that the fields are of greater importance since everything, every particle, is in constant movement. It is the field that makes it move. Like a leaf carried by the current of a river, it is the current that carries it; or a sailboat when it catches the current of the wind. Nothing can travel faster than the particular current without additional energy, but the speed of the particles depends on their mass, their charge, and the size/speed or frequency of the current in which it wants to travel. This would fit perfectly with conservation of energy. It would be another quality of the spacetime field that puts pressure on the particles that makes them experience entropy, like water pressure. Or maybe not.
