The following questions (in no particular order) which I had submitted have been "Deleted by Community":

2. Is average speed an invariant?

Is the value of average speed an invariant?,
specificly the value of the average speed, with respect to suitable(1) specific participants, say $P$ and $Q$, of some specific participant, say $A$, as $A$ moved from $P$ and $Q$?

Expressing the value of the average speed of $A$ wrt. $P$ and $Q$ as

$$v_{PQ}[~A~] := c~\beta_{PQ}[~A~],$$

where $c$ denotes the signal front speed, and $\beta_{PQ}[~A~]$ is a specific real number,
and where the average refers to the trial from $P$ and $A$ having departed from each other until $P$ and $A$ having reached each other,
does the value of $\beta_{PQ}[~A~]$ depend on the assignment of coordinate values to the relevant unique events $\varepsilon_{AP}$ and $\varepsilon_{AQ}$ (and/or to other events)?

Does the real-number value $\beta_{PQ}[~A~]$ change if coordinate values which are assigned to event $\varepsilon_{AP}$ are being changed, or if coordinate values which are assigned to event $\varepsilon_{AQ}$ are being changed?

Note also, that the real-number value $\beta_{PQ}[~A~]$ can be expressed in terms of intervals "between" certain pairs of the relevant events, e.g.

$$\beta_{PQ}[~A~] = \frac{s^2[~\varepsilon_{AP}, \varepsilon_{AQ}~] - s^2[~\varepsilon_{FQ}, \varepsilon_{AQ}~]}{s^2[~\varepsilon_{AP}, \varepsilon_{AQ}~] + s^2[~\varepsilon_{FQ}, \varepsilon_{AQ}~]},$$

where event $\varepsilon_{FQ}$ denotes the (unique) event of the future ("forward") light cone of event $\varepsilon_{AP}$ in which $Q$ took part (in coincidence with some suitable participant $F$); and that (presumably) the values of intervals are invariant.

(1: Specifily, $P$ and $Q$ remaining separate and at rest with respect to each other; i.e. constituting members of an inertial system in the sense of Rindler: "simply an infinite set of point particles sitting still in space relative to each other".)
