I did validate mine, but in the ARIN region I'm part of the only 2% that did, that's close enough to "nobody" for me, in context compared to RIPE numbers.

I agree, but it's not that simple.
The main issue I currently see with RPKI / ROA is not the ARIN TAL (altough I am directly affected) but the fact that nobody or almost nobody actually enforces RPKI. Most operators who are validating RPKI prefixes keep carrying them even when they are invalid, which makes the entire thing completely useless.
And yes I know, it's not that simple ;-)

And it may be shameless self-plugin, but I think we need to encourage experiments that actually try to enforce RPKI.
