 Can we please add the Classic Editor plugin as a part of WordPress Core?

 The reason is that there are a lot of people that still use Classic Editor
 or any other editor other than Gutenberg. In such a case, it would be a
 lot easier if a user can switch to Classic Editor without adding a plugin.
 Because every time someone sets up the new WordPress he/she has to add the
 plugin to switch the Classic Editor.

 As Gutenberg and Classic Editor both are part of WordPress core.

 So to enable/disable a Core WordPress functionality, it does not make
 sense to me to install a plugin. I feel it should be a part of Core
 WordPress. It will make the user's life easier.
