 Hi @whimsycollective,

 Welcome to Trac! Thanks for this suggestion.

 Going to provide some brief history on Masonry in WP Core for context.
 Masonry was introduced into WordPress in [20060] because it was needed for
 arranging thumbnails on the custom header screen.

 Usually, new external libraries are not added to the code base unless
 there is a need within WordPress for it, or there is significant demand.
 I'm not sure that I see the use case here based on your description. I'm
 having a hard time picturing the how the category and tag filtering could
 work in a theme agnostic manner, and not all themes require filtering. So
 I'm not sure that is a good feature to add to Core. Also, a portfolio post
 type is not something supported in WP by default, Jetpack is also
 maintained externally, and anything block editor related would need to be
 adjusted through the [https://github.com/wordpress/gutenberg GitHub

 I'm going to suggest this be closed out as a `wontfix`, but going to also
 mark for a second opinion. If I am misunderstanding the suggested use
 case, @whimsycollective please feel free to add more details to clarify.
