 now be 100% scalable and is being proposed as a replacement for the
 current menus administration screen for WordPress 4.3.

 great to get this fixed in both places to make way for #18271.
 Unfortunately, no, it's deeply, deeply integrated with and dependent on
 the Customizer API and heavily JS-dependent (and unfortunately this screen
 needs to support no-js and will always have to be around for no-js users
 at least). That's not to say that it couldn't be done, but it would
 require building out a framework like the Customizer API and redoing all
 of the JS to be structured accordingly. There are much better things we
 should spend our time doing, like fixing #18271 and all the other issues
 blocked by this in the Customizer at least.

 That would be to really fix the scaling problems to the extent that Menu
 Customizer does; there could be other solutions as I outlined in a comment
 here long ago. #28138 would be a good first step, and we're planning on
 fixing that in the Menu Customizer merge patch as it currently wraps the
 function to do that. But again, I don't think it's worth spending all of
 the time it would take to fix this issue, and if we did fix it here we'd
 want to do it right with a fully JS-driven solution. Which the Customizer
 lets us do.
