It's rather like in 7th with Tyranids. Commander spam is one of the few things that we have left to still have a chance to even compete with other lists.
Also Daemon Princes are strong, yes, but CSM have enough other things they can take to have a strong list. Daemon Princes still have to get into melee after all.

A better option is reducing the number of weapons commanders can take to 2 or 3, and allow them to then take 1 or 2 support systems while also either reducing the points cost of all battlesuits, or increasing their BS to 3+
I have a feeling we will get something like this in the codex where you will now have to choose between strike commanders and buff commanders.

Hmm, good point. What if a signature system took up 2 slots and you could only have 1 per commander?
It doesn't feel right to me but it feels balance3d
