What is Neglected by Einstein's Result

Math has to cater to physics at some level but it seems to be a uneasy
balance... Mathmaticians understandably don't like physics... What
gets neglected by Einstein's result? For one thing, mass is a mass at
rest... Physics seems to play this absurd game in which an actual
discovery leads to a big fight between physics and engineering and
chemistry... The other thing which gets under Einstein's result is the
speed of sound... Nobody knows what really happens when mass is
accelerated to relativistic speeds but the speed of light minus the
speed of sound squared would seem to have a consensus formed around

E=m0x(c-(speed of sound))^2
