There is a difference between the speed of light being variable
and being uncertain. I have yet to speak to someone about this
issue but my gut reaction is this. The speed of light can be a
constant and still suffer from Heisenburg's uncertainty

Also, keep in mind that it is certain pairs of physical
quantities that are uncertain together. I can measure a speed
(momentum) of a particle with infinite precision. I then have no
idea where it is though.
