You are right about signal being a centralized service.

You are recommending integrating something which is centralized and in
control of one single entity(Signal) rather than something which is
decentralized and federated(email).

We can integrate matrix/xmpp/IRC chats rather than Signal. As far as the
matter of convenience or registering via phone number is concerned,
Quicksy can be used which is a part of XMPP family.
People who want convenience can use Quicksy and register via phone
number, while others like me who don't want to register via phone number
can register on another xmpp service(or they can have their own server)
and still talk to Quicksy users.

Signal maybe good for now but we cannot guarantee it will continue to be
as good. It is effectively a lock-in, which is a problem of
centralization. In future if the Signal service gets compromised(like
change of the owner of the company might change their values or they
might change something about Signal that you do not agree with), nobody
bothers to switch.

Quicksy is a brilliant hack which offers both convenience and freedom.
