The invariant round-trip speed of light fixes the observable elements of the theory, but it does not uniquely determine the presumed ontological structure, because multiple different interpretations can be made to fit the same set of appearances.
The invariance of lightspeed is a convention, but the invariance of lightspeed in terms of inertial coordinates is an empirical fact, and this empirical fact is not a formal tautology, because inertial coordinates are determined by the mechanical inertia of material objects, independent of the propagation of light.
Thus the empirical fact of lightspeed invariance and isotropy with respect to inertial coordinates remains as a primitive component of the theory.

The Galilean transformation, he realised, is just an approximation to a Lorentz transformation which is a perfect symmetry of electrodynamics.
In the language of symmetry we would say that the laws of electrostatics are invariant under the addition of a value to the potential which is the same everywhere.
Diffeomorphism invariance describes a symmetry of space-time while the symmetry of electromagnetism acts on some abstract internal space of the components of the field.

  physics - Galilean invariance
Galilean invariance is a principle which states that the fundamental laws of physics are the same in all inertial (uniform-velocity) frames of reference.
Specifically, the term Galilean invariance today usually refers to this principle as applied to Newtonian mechanics, under which all lengths and times remain unaffected by a change of velocity, which is described mathematically by a Galilean transformation.
At the low relative velocities characteristic of everyday life, Lorentz invariance and Galilean invariance are nearly the same, but for relative velocities close to that of light they are very different.

  To test the Galilean invariance of the model a drop of radius lattice units was initialised at the centre of a 128 by 128 grid with the whole fluid moving with speed in the x-direction and with gravity acting in the z-direction with strength g = 0.

 17. First and Second Derivative differential equations.
So, what we have seen so far is (1) differential equations in the second degree - the wave equations - must clearly be the same for all forms: the privileged form in x, the generalized cartesian form in x and the centroid, x.c, or the transformed generalized cartesian form.
That is, anyone who imagines that correct usage gives different results for galilean transformed frames is at first showing his ignorance, and in the end showing his intellectual corruption.
If you are using moving frame data, you must use the moving frame centroid as well as the light front (or whatever) moving frame data itself, perhaps first calculating (x'-x.c'), which equals (x-x.c) which is obviously correct, and which is obviously the plain old correct x of the privileged form.

In particular, the Principle of Relativity is embodied in the form of the Galilean transformation, which relates the original x, y, z, t to x', y', z', t' by the transform equations x'=x-vt, y'=y, z'=z, t'=t in the simplified case where attention is focused only on transforming the x-axis, and not y and z.
One example of the traditional fallacious idea that an equation is not invariant under the galilean transformation comes from the Encyclopedia Brittanica: "Before Einstein's special theory of relativity was published in 1905, it was usually assumed that the time coordinates measured in all inertial frames were identical and equal to an 'absolute time'.
A major justification they have for their idea of the correct M system equation on which to base the the discussion of invariance, is that the variables are M system variables, never mind the fact that the arguments are S system values.

 Symmetry and Symmetry Breaking (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The first explicit study of the invariance properties of equations in physics is connected with the introduction, in the first half of the nineteenth century, of the transformational approach to the problem of motion in the framework of analytical mechanics.
The diffeomorphism freedom of GTR, i.e., the invariance of the form of the laws under transformations of the coordinates depending smoothly on arbitrary functions of space and time, is a “local” spacetime symmetry, in contrast to the “global” spacetime symmetries of STR (which depend instead on constant parameters).
The extension of the concept of continuous symmetry from “global” symmetries (such as the Galilean group of spacetime transformations) to “local” symmetries is one of the important developments in the concept of symmetry in physics that took place in the twentieth century.

 Proof that Classical Action is Invariant in a Galilean Transformation—by Miles Mathis
A Galilean transform is Galilean (instead of Lorentzian) because in the time of Galileo light was thought to have an infinite speed.
Therefore, if you have a Galilean transform like this, and you want to transform kinetic energy only between the observer’s field and the particle’s field, then the equation truly is invariant, by a tautology, since according to all pre-Einstein math they were equivalent.
The conventional Galilean transformation used in all modern texts, whatever its historical source, is the limit of the Lorentz transformation when all relative speeds are very much smaller than c.

Galileo is the first person we know of to have the insight that the speed of any object cannot be stated absolutely— only as 'relative' to something else.
Renaming it "Galilean Invariance' may make it distinguishable from Einstein's theories for those who are already experts in the subject, but for the rest of us it merely obfuscates thing further.
