Indeed - I think this is the case now. Folks are massively either

  a) avoiding signatures because "experimental" - and will continue to
     do so until they become not so, or

  b) using signatures anyway as if they were real first-class syntax

Either way, the continued presence of the "experimental" tag isn't
really helping anyone. Not users, not porters, not the image of the
language as a thing that is moving forward.
