James R. Kirk
Thing there is, Kirk himself never claimed that "R" was his middle initial, and neither did Kirk's official record from Court Martial.

So how is Mitchell placing a R on James T. Kirk's tombstone in the tiniest way a lack of "internal consistency?"

Because when Court Martial was written they ( writers/producers/continuity checkers) should have remembered it had been established that Kirks middle initial is "R".
Correctamundo.

Mitchell is Kirk's best friend. It's unlikely he wouldn't know his middle initial.
