Comment (by professor44):

 Replying to [comment:2 joyously]:
 > I like the idea, but it's a little tricky with things that are done in
 the Customizer and things that are done on other admin pages. The home
 page is something that is still available in both (thank goodness!).
 > The things listed under Next Steps involve creating content. Deciding
 what goes on your home page might be difficult at the point of
 installation, since there is no content. You can't choose a non-existent
 page for the Home Page. Perhaps it is better under More Actions? Or just
 doesn't belong because you need content first?

 I meant to add: It's one of those very important things that you don't
 know how to do, or that you need to do until you spend time hunting around
 or building a homepage in the wrong place.  This is one of those things
 that will help a user learn what they don't know.

 Also vanilla WordPress comes with a sample page which can easily be
 reconfigured to a Home Page and will exist in the very earliest moments of
 building a site.
