I heard no reports of anything breaking as a direct consequence of ARPA being signed.

I *have* heard some reports of disruptions when people added the trust anchor for ARPA to their validator automatically, which were resolved by manual operator intervention.

I think the distinction is important, because the implications of the former are that we need to put the brakes on DNSSEC deployment in TLDs and perhaps the root, something that I don't think anybody wants to happen unnecessarily.

So, to be clear: you are saying that you have identified an operational problem when you add a trust anchor, right?
