There is the "duality" compromise, but that seems to be something of a "cop out".
Would it be legitimate to describe EM radiation, including light, as energy propagating through space; the quantization effect being a function of space itself? No zero mass particles required!
Most detectors of light are not coherent devices so you lose a lot of information which an RF interferometer doesn't. That is a nuisance if you want to use your idea for optical measurements.You could imagine some sort of Laser / Mixer as the basic receiving element which would produce an output at a frequency that could be then signal processed.But you can already produce partial large optical mirrors which can give you high resolving powers. Remember - the picture you get from any interferometer is not pretty and requires 'intelligent' use of you want to get proper sense out of it. You can't beat a large circular(ish) reflector for good pictures.
