Matt,
 
Certainly, there is justification for such a meaning since PAS may include  
"everything belonging, in kind, to the class designated by the noun every  kind 
of, all sorts of..." (BAGD, 631).  Examples include Mt. 4:23;  23:27; 28:18; 
Acts 2:5; 7:22; 13:10a, b; Rom. 1:18, 29; 7:8; 1 Cor. 1:5b; 6:18;  2 Cor. 7:1; 
9:8b, c; 10:5a; Eph. 1:3, 8, 21a; 4:19; 5:3; Phil. 1:9; 2 Th. 2:17;  Tit. 
1:16; 3:1; 2:14; Heb. 13:21; Jas. 1:17, 21; 1 Pet. 2:1a, b; Rev. 8:7.   A.T. 
Robertson adds 1 Tim. 2:1 (Word Pictures)!   
 
However, BAGD puts 1Tim. 2:4 in another category:  "w. a noun in  the pl., 
without the art. PANTES ANQROPOI all men, everyone...."   Cf. Acts 22:15; Rom. 
5:12a, 18a, b; 12:17; 1 Cor. 7:7; 15:19; 2 Cor. 3:2; Phil.  4:5; 1 Th. 2:15; 1 
Tim. 4:10; Tit. 2:11.
