Do any small breweries out there have experience with using oversized bright tanks to carbonate batches? I'm in the process of arranging a 3-5BBL brewery and plan on brewing both single and double sized batches. Would using a 10BBL bright tank for a 5BBL batch run the risk of losing beer quality and/or aromas?

As long as the tank is half-full, you don't need to worry about losing aromas - so long as you maintain the correct amount of pressure throughout. Mind you, you’ll need a bigger space in order to complete the process this way - and twice the amount of C02 and liquid during clean-up, too. This will ultimately end up costing you more money, as well. Nevertheless, if none of that poses a problem for you, then you're good to go!
