I can't see any reason the velcro can't be sewn onto the helmet cover in the same way it was glued onto the helmet. And the accessories that attach using screws could be used just by punching/cutting a hole in the cover or by cutting away that portion of the cover.

Perfect. Why do you want your camo cover to look "right" or "good". It should look like shit so that it can work as camo in the field.
I do think that we could stand to issue a solid color cover so guys don't have to change out all their shit when they change uniforms. That's my one argument against the helmet cover.
I've been playing with adhesive cloth tape placed between the velcro patches and it seems to be doing the trick for taking the shine off.
