Signal is a single company providing a centralized product. I think what's missing the most for our user community is the federation and the choice of clients. While I agree with you that they have achieved significant results with a bunch of people, this only shows that we can get at least as good, if we just concentrate our efforts. 

A single decision by Moxie or a single court order in some country can make Signal unavailable to a large part of its user base. 

Email and the web have survived the last decades, while centralized services came and went away (anybody remembers AOL? MySpace?).
