@legoktm & other wikimedia people who may be following me, thoughts on https://enwp.org/WP:VPPR#Wrapping_signatures_in_markup? I think it might be helpful but am not sure about hidden technical costs.
@danielhglus This isn't a new idea :)
See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T27141 and https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/core/+/130094 and the thread starting with https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2014-September/078853.html
There are some good recommendations in https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2014-September/078861.html on how to move forwards. Also back in 2014 there was a lot of hope/momentum on Flow that isn't as relevant anymore, so I think there will be some more willingness to accept a not-perfect solution that is still an improvement.
