i see your point, but not to be an [email protected]$$ about it that's what anti-collision lights are for. even when they're pained in the usual white biz-jet schemes airplanes can damn hard to spot. also, the majority of the flying with that airplane is going to be IFR anyway.
Having shared pattern with mil aircraft on many occasions, I can tell you: They are one helluva lot harder to keep track of visually than anything painted typically civilian white/red/yellow/lemon blue.
A) Illegal or against regs: Probably not.
B) A bright idea: Not at all, IMNSHO.
C) Are others doing it: Yes.
D) Does C change B: Nope.
Most of the time, what you do with your aircraft is up to you. When it comes to visibility, it is not. I think it is rude to other aviators to intentionally make an aircraft harder to see than it has to be. What's the goodwill gained by not being rude worth to your company?
I thought I was doing good trying to avoid those airport hotels... and look at me now.
