matrix is certainly better than signal. I agree that the xmpp ecosystem is a bit of a mess. one way to manage it is to just say "use this client, and we'll use this server" for your org. that it federates with other servers is then seen as a bonus, not a requirement

xmpp bridging used to be a huge thing about ten years ago

another way to look at this is that perhaps you don't need to do everything with one single protocol. we have mumble for voice, email for structured+archived discussion, irc for ephemeral chat. I see some of these new protocols attempting to please every damn user, and it's bound to fail imo. matrix and mastodon stand out in that regard
