I'm not aware of any published survey (Geoff Huston's style: send a
Flash ad, which loads three images, one in an unsigned domain, one in
a domain properly signed with ECC and one deliberately broken-signed
with ECC, and see which image(s) is(are) loaded).

So, the answer is "I don't know".

There are some already existing domains signed only with ECC, such as
ecdsa.isc.org. You can try to query them from several points (using
Atlas probes, may be) and see how often you get the AD bit.
