Comment (by aduth):

 Replying to [comment:3 dd32]:
 > [8480] is related to this. @aduth / @coffee2code did that commit
 completely remove the requirement?

 I'm not entirely positive which requirement you're referring to
 specifically. The commit was a result of a discussion from Slack:


 To your original post, "a future version of Gutenberg won't include all of
 the 'replace the editing interface' code we're using" is exactly
 [https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/13569 what's happened] in the
 plugin. There's a bit of back-and-forth in the Slack conversation, but
 r8480 is a bit of stop-gap solution to reinstate functions which were
 removed from Gutenberg. The more permanent solution would be to render the
 core editor (`wp-admin/edit-form-blocks.php`) in some way or another.

 Perhaps if your question is whether the function in r8480 could avoid the
 need to pursue this refactor, I suppose it's a question of whether it's
 something desirable to maintain, weighed with the difficulty of adapting
 to rendering the core editor (@tjnowell

 some of his own anecdotes] which seem to indicate that it might not be a
 simple process).
