I don't know if you've seen Jekyll at all (another Victorian adaptation by Steven Moffat). I think Holmes, and especially A Study in Pink, brings over in another format one of the main clues of Jekyll: the book is a trap, a misdirection. I think that Moffat and Gatiss also want to emphasize how "not" like the book the show is supposed to be; I found the misdirection of the american in the taxi quite telling in that regard. But I like your analysis of the inversion, it makes a lot of sense. And I hadn't seen the reception history embedded in it; however I will definitely watch out for it when I watch it again.
