If only that were true!
Eye gouges...ear grabs. Eyes are eyes and soft tissue is soft tissue. Doesn't matter what art you do. If your being attacked and your life is in holds barred until you feel you can safely deal with the attacker. At that point, no need to be brutal.
It is worth pointing out that the so called "dirty" techniques are going to be much more likely to be delivered by the person dominating position. If you're on the ground that is likely to be the BJJer

I think overall Aikido is a better package than BJJ
I would say
Aikido is a better package than BJJ.
I would also say
BJJ is a better package than Aikido.

Which one I would say at any given moment depends on what comes after "and by better, I mean better for......"

After 35....who needs the injuries!!
Beleive it or not I and many of my guys have found BJJ to be less injury prone than Aikido
I would be bored and a little uncomfortable rolling around on a mat with a sweaty neanderthal for 2 hours.
I'm sure you didn't mean this to be as offensive as it came across?
