Dave,

How about:

scatter y x if !mi(x,y) (?)

One thing to consider is that your original graph informs the reader that
there are missing observations in the data set, which would not be apparent
if the range was restricted jointly non-missing values.

You mean this is the default behavior that I've somehow missed these last couple years? Now that's stupid.
