If it is non-isotropic, so many of our most basic assumptions are incorrect, or rather they are very close approximations.  The ugliness in the equations is too revolting to consider.

Might it serve to narrow the anthropic principle to a more localized space-time? If so, this spatial variation of the EM field could explain the Great Silence and give our universe a "Goldilocks zone".

Ja it sure would.  It could mean our Goldilocks zone is temporary, perhaps only a few tens of billions years.  Do let us hope it is not true, but if it is true, let us hope it will not become generally known.
