 Sidebars can be queries via the sidebar REST API, added in WordPress 5.8.
 However this data is not public, as requires the current user to be have
 rights to edit the widget to see the sidebar in the api. Sidebars are
 registered in PHP, so adding `show_in_rest` param, should be easy. This
 opt-in feature would make sidebar data, including embedded widgets,
 public, if the dev opts in.
