There is no urgency to have all nodes upgraded to 0.16.3. The majority of hashrate has already upgraded, so they will ensure an invalid block is orphaned. This is no different than 0.13 nodes not upgrading and trusting miners to enforce SegWit outputs aren't spent incorrectly.…

If anything, getting everyone upgraded immediately to 0.16.3 is a lot more dangerous for a decentralized network. Having client diversity is very important as there may be new bugs in newer versions. People should take their time to get comfortable with upgrades.

Exchanges and merchant processors have likely all upgraded to protect themselves. There are no incentives for miners to cheat. Nakamoto consensus game theory is working as designed.

If we have to resort to publicly shaming people to upgrade their nodes, we have already failed.
