AC have it on their 777s
AC have it on their CS3, too, as per the picture up thread. But it’s not an OEM requirement.

Not sure you what you are suggesting. Those aircraft pre-exist the current livery.
If you are saying you like the older Air Canada livervies more, what does that have to do with AC220 and the new livery?

So although it is an Airbus it is by name only, the "Raccoon" mask is not part of the original design.
The black mask that AC aircraft wear is actually an interpretation of the Canada Goose and has no correlation to the mask that newer Airbus are offered with.
