Well the 'standard' answer is that the way to get your RIR to commit to a service is to actively advocate in the relevant forums in your local region that this is an important member service that needs some level of priority in terms of work schedules.
However, it's also the case that this particular item has already attracted some detailed attention across the RIRs and there is considerable levels of liaison within the RIR's based around APNIC's committed schedule of activity. So if the regional policy forums say "its a good thing to do" and the RIR members say "yes, its a really good thing, lets do it" then doubtless you will see schedules and deliverables from all RIRs in relatively short order. So, as with any membership-based organization, its a two-way thing - the members have to also play their part in saying loudly and clearly what they want in terms of services.
A joint effort for this would be nice and also allow testing across the world. Also if the certs are deployed in APNIC I am sure that quite some ISP's on this side of the planet want to verify what is getting announced what they don't want to see ;) I found that the sig-ca mailinglist is a closed list.
We are certainly not planning for such a restricted outcome, and we at APNIC would definitely like to see this as a complete service across all RIRs, of course.
