good to see entries on linguistics (which is what my degree is in).

I'm not sure you'd describe the standard modern accent as RP, I've always seen the term used to describe the marked forms that you mention. Still, you make the point that the marked form of RP (heOw neOw brOwn ceOw etc) is a minority accent, so it's only a difference in terminology...
