I would beg to differ.  During any given pass of AO-10, you might have to
spend 50% of the time in one polarization and 50% in the other.

And the LEOS tend to have variation in the polarizations as well.  I
typically get INTO the FOO birds better on LHCP than RHCP.

I would recommend anyone thinking about new antennas setups to get
switchable polarizations.  It really helps.
