Ambiguity does exist.
I have read this article and if I understand it well it argues to replace the laws of field induction with laws that relate fields to currents, changing currents and charge.

But if you have a normal transformer with iron core. The magnetic field in the primary equals the magnetic field in the secondary but it exists almost entirely in the iron core. So to cause a secondary current this magnetic field has to induce an electric field that causes the current. I don't see how you could get rid of this induction of fields idea in this particular case. If the secondary magnetic field would be inside the secondary windings than ok but not if the field is entirely in the iron.
So I still hold on to the induction of fields idea but interesting article and thoughts!
