Special Relativity implies definite structural constraints on the massive particles. It is shown from the basic physics of luminal waves of any kind that multi-component wave systems conform to the usual relativistic mechanics for massive particles, suggesting further consideration of luminal wave soliton models. The usual length contraction and time dilation phenomena are found in an important subset of such models, leading to the conclusion that internal movements referred to the comoving frame will be luminal in any Lorentz Invariant particle model.
