In the five years I've been practicing Aikido I only do reversals only on those students who I consider to be friends, who would help me out by showing me a weakness in my technique by doing the same; and then we usually get a good laugh out of it.

If another student is "too hard" or "too serious" and might see it as a challenge, therefore a competition I would refrain from the temptation. If one of those students does a reversal on me I thank them and move on but would not try it on them.
