I see no implications for Mach Effect.

Interesting. Hmmm.
Sounds like it is easy enough to test. A dedicated reversal check should add to the argument.

I see no implications for Mach Effect.

From the link above:
According to McCulloch, inertia is simply the pressure the Unruh radiation exerts on an accelerating body.

From Flux Capacitors and the Origin of Inertia
Taking into account the fact that the field produced by the chiefly distant matter in the universe must display the same universal coupling to matter as gravity to properly account for inertial reaction forces, the essence of Mach’s principle can be put into yet more succinct form: Inertial reaction forces are the consequence of the gravitational action of the matter located in the causally connected part of the universe on objects therein accelerated by “external” forces.

It looks like apples and oranges...

McCulloch: Unruh radiation (thermal photons?) --> inertia
Woodward(/Sciama/Mach): Gravitational action of matter (gravitons? spacetime ripples?) --> inertia

By the Maximum Weirdness Principle, they'll probably both be right.
