As there are plenty of pictures in the DB featuring runways on final approach, I don't see why there shouldn't be pictures of them taken at other stages in the circuit. I suspect it could be rejected because of "too much of the airplane" in the shot. Would it be more acceptable like this? http://photofile.ru/photo/chukcha63/1205058/66431410.jpg
Maybe I'm wrong, and this 'motive' is just totally unacceptable, full stop?

I think that's your answer.
With this image you're probably midway between the 2 "acceptable" images for A.net... No aircraft in the view so you just see the airport/runway, and a wide angle view that shows more cockpit (and maybe less pilot).
This photo could well find its place in a learning to fly book/site that shows what you should be seeing at a particular stage in the circuit.

I think that's the point: It's not a window shot (clearly) and it's not a cockpit shot, but somewhere in between. That by itself is not enough to kill it, as long as you have a clear motive/reason for your crop, but honestly I cannot see any reason why taking a window shot from the other side of the cockpit might add something to the window view...
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
