I think that most of us (me included) are already using it but the
problem is that they don't have BGP collectors everywhere in the world.
This is in fact a generic issue for BGP monitoring.

So the more we get the best it is and that's why I'll be using Gadi's
BGP monitoring tool (and any other that might come) in parallel with the
one provided by the RIPE.

Note that MyASN will soon be replaced by IS Alarms which is simpler and
as efficient as MyASN:
