Yeah, I know DNSSEC adoption is presently rather low. For me personally, 
popularity is not what warrants merit.

Microsoft Frontpage use to be extremely popular, that didn't make it a 
good product.

The popularity of HPKP is the result of Google pushing it on the 
industry after developing it in private themselves. They did not involve 
the Internet community in its design until after it was already 
implemented in Chrome.

I'm tired of letting Google rule the Internet. But that's not a 
technical objection, technical objections I already listed, but it would 
have been nice if HPKP could have been developed in an open manner where 
those issues maybe could have been addressed before it was put into use.
