Note PVC has to be rated for the appropriate temperature, which may be too high on the roof. I've heard stories of PVC degrading and coming apart in that situation.

It's allowed by the code. It's not a particularly good practice though unless you are in a corrosive environment, close to the ocean, on an island, in a wastewater treatment plant, etc.
