There arent very many other times to bomb a facility, Egypt has been bombed once or twice just as an economy sink for UK. As well as everything is India. A solid SBR campaign against India, combined with a sub or tow, can shut that economy down utterly.
I rarely see the allies bomb ports and airbases though. Actualy, almost never. And I think the reason is they want to get their hands on them intact so they can use them, another reason is there is really no tactical reason to.
The allies simply use these bases more, to more of an effect. So at least the axis doing it has some negligable use.
We've discussed this in another thread. I think the solution is as simple as moving the repair phase to the beginning of the mobilize phase. The affected power would not be able to use his/her bases for movement during his/her turn, but would not be crippled (think Italy, UK, Japan) by not being able to place units, since he/she would be allowed to place them in a newly repaired factory.
