I have read speculations that
(1) the cosmic microwave background radiation has a fractal distribution (nonintegral Hausdorff dimension), and (2) the same might be true of galaxy cluster distribution (although different dimensionality to (1)) Whether or not one or both analyses are correct: even so, what difference would it make to the established laws of physics?

Right. Examples of the following are:
