Should Michael Bay's jet be an Autobot character?

I've been re-watching DOTM and for the first time I've noticed an Autobot symbol on the jet which happens to be Michael Bay's.

So should his jet be an Autobot in TF4?

Not really.

People were happiest casting Bay as Warpath.

Eh, I'm torn on the matter.

On one hand, I think it'd be a neat little easter egg. The fancy white private jet with the Autobot insignia could make a cool Air Raid, Wing Saber, or whatever other aerial Autobot. Heck, go crazy and have a brief shot of Bay himself as the hologram pilot. Though then we'd have to prepare ourselves for the inevitable "private jet character shows up for 45 seconds throughout a 2.5 hour movie, has 3 lines of dialogue and is never seen again"-scenario... If it were a relatively prominent character, then I'd be all for it. But the chances of that happening would be slim.

And on the other hand, I can just imagine that complaints and countless ensuing threads about "Bay is a jerk, he'd rather have his own jet be a character than [insert whatever individual robot character was left out of the movie]!", "Why couldn't he make it [insert one aerial Autobot here] instead of [insert a different aerial Autobot here]?!", "Why didn't he put that character in one of the previous movies here?!", "He's so self-centered to make his private jet a character!!!", "It was already in DotM for like 3 seconds, CONTINUITY!!1!".

Also, I wholeheartedly approve of Bay voicing Bayformers Warpath.

If anything, it should be nothing but a throwaway gag. But basically every Autobot we've seen so far has had ties to the US Military, not Platinum Dunes, so I think it'd be hard to fit it in.

What if its a civilian Autobot like those refugees in TF Cybertron hiding in plain sight.
