So then c would be the "speed limit", and the speed of light would be something slightly less...

This still doesn't explain why photons have the same speed no matter your reference point.
It would be explained due to the fact that our measurements were not sufficiently sensitive until now. Of course, that is quite a statement and I think would require an extensive review. But that is the only way that this result could be confirmed and be compatible with previous data.
