However, does this produce what you want?

Thank you Scott, this at least solved my problem! I will document this, because one does not come to such a trick from studying the manual, next time one needs it.
Still strange that there is no straight-forward way to turn of that bottom axis either inside or outside the by-construct, where one would expect it to be along with the other options like grids, labels etc. Is this already on a wish-list at Stata's, or is it just technically impossible?
