This is a worthy goal. As a biased modern differential geometer, my view
is that this would be a lot easier if you were to write Maxwell's
equations with respect to the Minkowski space-time metric and using
differential forms. A lot of stuff fits together in a more logical
consistent fashion when you do this.

Yeah, but who cares? I like the spirit.
But this is probably waaaaay off topic for this newsgroup.
