Is there (or when are you going to put) an easy to use feature to add watermarks to photo's in ACR? Watermarks are a big deal, now more than ever.

Why would this have to be in ACR in your opinion? Adding a watermark is easy to do in Photoshop itself. And in principle ACR is just the front end to convert raw files for use in Photoshop.

Do you think so ("ACR is just the front end...")?  But it's not.
With ACR one can develop photos exactly like in Lightroom, completely without using Ps. 
In Lr there is an ability to add watermark when exporting photos, but in ACR there's not. 
OK, when I want to export a big amount of photos maybe it's ok to import them in Lr, let it use the XMP-s and export with watermark.  But doing this when I have just one-few photo(s) developed and I want a watermark on it/them this method is unnecessery too complex. 
So the "use Ps/Lr to add watermark" is far not the best solution/advice. ;)

Because when you are processing images from an event and want to watermark 150 it would be much better to do it in ACR.

Sometimes I just use Camera Raw and export my images without further editing in Photoshop. It would be so great to have this feature. The Photoshop App does have it and it's great but I wish there was a PC Version of it.

Camera RAW is not a full featured image processor. Adding features just bloats it and means there are more things to break.
