VBL, what are Pakistani rules regarding issuing passport to their national abroad? It seems quite severe refusing to issue you a passport if you can prove that you are from Pakistan.
I personaly do not think HO can issue RC without passport as the permit need to be endorsed in your Passport. However they also got this other document called 'immigration status document'. Just ring UKBA and ask if you are eligible to get that one.
Good luck and sorry i could not help

Have you provided alternative proof of your nationality, like homeoffice issued document, ID card from Pakistan, former HO letter or Card issued to you.

Have you informed the Pakistani Embassy that you are indeed living lawfully in the UK, as under EU law, something the UKBA is perfectly aware of, you are not required to have a Residence Permit for your residence to be lawful.

What i am more concerned about, is the fact that your wife is British and only got Irish Citizenship, to assist you with your application.

If she has never resided in another Memberstate besides UK, UKBA may want to refuse you on that basis, once you have overcome the issue of your Identification.
