In my opinion, the theory of Absolute Parallelism
(AP; an abstract)
is of interest for physics geometrization (aka Hilbert's problem #6).
There is a unique variant of the theory, the exceptional equation (EE; 2^{d}order, nonLagrangian)
of the frame field h^{ a}_{ì}, whose solutions seem to be free
from singularities if D=5 (D=4 is just forbidden for EE; one can extend the compatibility analysis to
degenerate, but finite, co(contra)frame matrices).
The additional spatial dimension manifests itself both in the cosmological expansion (there are spherically symmetric
nonstationary solutions as a longitudinal wave running along the radius and forming a cosmological waveguide, a region with nonzero Ricci tensor), and also in the nonlocal behavior of elementary particles
(large size along the extra ("undeveloped") dimension; localized configurations of the frame field can carry discrete information  topological charges and, if
configuration has some symmetry, topological quasicharges).
It seems the frame field is only twice as "large" in number of components (D^{2}  D) compared to vacuum GR
(in AP the metric
g_{ìí} = ç_{ab }h^{ a}_{ì} h^{ b}_{í}
where ç_{ab} is the Minkowski metric).
However, the increase in the number of polarizations (polarization degrees of freedom, PDF) is more pronounced:
D(D2)=15 compared to D(D3)/2 =5, the number of GWpolarizations.
Finally, it is necessary to introduce auxiliary 4Dfields (quantised avatarfields) for phenomenological description of topological (quasi)particles prone to interact; so the overall picture turns out to be complex and interesting.
