RNC (Hadaka Jime) is uncommon in Judo due to not being able to pry up the head and no hands on face rules. I've gotten a few guys with it in shiai, and the first guy I ever choked out all the way was a RNC, although not the variation with the hand/arm behind uke head.Falling for Judo since 1980

So I teach it to more advanced students and let them decide how much emphasis they want to give it.
I agree, the potential for neck cranks is high, especially with the mae version.Falling for Judo since 1980

I like the bow and arrow over the rnc for what it is worth.

In general anything done with one hand is kata te, but who knows in your example?

I've used it in newaza but it only really works on someone who hasn't seen it before. It can sneak up on you.

I'm not good with the RNC, but this is definitely wrong. It does seem that there are guys with necks too strong to succumb to non-collar chokes, but high-level grapplers are routinely caught in RNCs.
Also, I am skeptical about the role of the vasovagal response in "blood chokes". I want to see some fMRI...
