Actually if someone prove RH with any reasonably consistent strong axiom, he/she will prove that RH is not refutable by Peano Arithmetic (PA), and that would show that RH is true, given that if RH is false, PA can prove it with finitary means.

I don't know what you mean by *outside* of the realm of undecidable. (Note that "undecidability" is a relative notion, unlike uncomputability which is absolute (through Church's thesis). I will come back on this in my post for George (in may).
