 Replying to [comment:86 westonruter]:
 > @melchoyce Is this entirely needed if the text widget (#35243) allows
 for media to be embedded?

 Waffling. I still think there's a use case for just having a media widget,
 especially because it makes it more discoverable. It's a little redundant,
 but I don't know that it's redundant in a damaging way. I'd prioritize the
 text widget ''if'' media is guaranteed to be included, but prioritize this
 if media inclusion in the text widget is still up in the air.
