as far as it being used on other aircraft, I have no clue, but I would assume that if it is deemed the 'best' camo then it will be used on other planes.
as far as it being uneeded, I must disagree. The F-22 gives the US the most advanced F/A in the world. Remember that it will be the only stealth A2A fighter in the world, and can perform other missions that the F-15 or any other fighter in the world simply can't. The US airforce needs this plane to preserve air dominance for the next couple decades.
