The kind of accidents that anti-skid paint prevents tend to be at the low end of reportable incidents, unless they happen to result in a fall from height or perhaps if they occur when handling live munitions.

From a UK legislative perspective (I know you're discussing US gear), it would be very difficult to argue against using this type of textured surface coating because it would not be possible to argue that it wasn't unconditionally better, and the marginal cost would be negligible.

In other words, it won't cost enough extra over the original coating compared to the expected reduction in minor injuries, with some outliers up to and including death that could conceivably have been prevented
