#32399: Lists of items should inform users about the "current view" being displayed

 See related #32147

 Several screens in the admin present items in a list and you can filter
 these lists choosing which "view" you want, whether they're Posts in a
 List Table or lists generated by other components (see Themes and
 Plugins), they all have some "views" links.

 When you select a view, there's no clear, semantic, indication in the
 markup about the current view being displayed. There's just some bold

 Users, especially the ones who use assistive technologies, would need some
 feedback about which kind of "view" they're currently in. For example,
 something like ''you're currently viewing the Scheduled Posts''. Of course
 this is the semantics that should be conveyed, not the best possible

 There are ways to do this but the main issue would be about translatable
 strings, as pointed out in #32147.

 Any thoughts and patches more than welcome :)
