On the other hand there has been much discussion about how this could avert the infinities which plague Quantum Field Theory (Cf.ref. and several other references therein).

Actually any Quantum Mechanics field theory is being defined over a flat spacetime (null connection and flat metric) and introduces gauge fields through the connection and curvature of some associated internal-space. Gravity on the other hand is all about space-time’s curvature (standard connection and curved metric).
