At our airline, in the ever daunting quest to homogenize our Bus Fleet and Boeing fleet...we turn on all exterior lights when crossing the hold short line (taxi light to TO) and place the landing lights to the off position. When given takeoff clearance we place the landing lights to the on position. (When crossing a runway all exterior lighting is to be on.)

Regardless of the attempt at exterior lighting homogenation, it takes a new Bus Captain a bit to figure out exterior lighting protocol.
