"If as velocity approaches c, the mass increases toward infinity, and length approaches zero, we have an extension to c, which says that at c, we have infinite mass contained "within" zero volume,...I'd have to say you're being intentionally selective. "

That's why things can't reach the speed of light. Only massless particles can move at the speed of light. Thus, the singularity you describe would never be reached by an object with mass (it would require infinite energy). You should study relativity a little more carefully.
