Anchor light could be problematic, producing the appearance that you aren't moving. Deck lights, yeah if I had them they'd be on unless they affected my night vision. Landing lights always on? Below 18 (the equivalent of nearshore sailing, where there's more general aviation traffic), yeah you betcha. That IS an industry standard.
