 Current status here looks like we're trying to figure out a better styling
 for these links, but without much success so far. I'd like this to be a
 persistent link, because users may land on these screens and mean to go to
 the Customizer instead, so a dismiss-able notice probably won't work. A
 more subtle link that initially has a dismiss-able feature pointer could
 work though.

 I added a screenshot of the custom header admin page. It, and the custom
 background page, still exist, primarily for no-js users, but they aren't
 linked anywhere in core anymore for users that can access the Customizer.
 On those screens, we have the info-style notice with a descriptive
 sentence that links to the Customizer version. I think we went with the
 alternate styling for widgets to be less invasive, but I do think that
 this is probably the most appropriate way to include a link to the
 Customizer version on the admin screens, especially promoting the ability
 to live-preview changes.

 See #28032 for more history.

 Also just got another idea - what if when the Customize admin bar link is
 present in the admin, when on this screen we deep-link it to menus? Make
 it contextual to the current admin context when possible, like it's
 contextual to the current front-end context.
