 Thanks for reporting this @davelo. Sorry this has been a disruptive
 release for you.

 I'll go through the points individually.

 > It starts with the naming of a newly made reusable block; which is
 totally out of the viewport of the user.

 This has since been improved in the Gutenberg plugin, a dialog will now
 show when creating a reusable block where the user can name the block.

 > It must be more clear when editing a 'child' block. Maybe an extra
 button can be integrated in the floating editor toolbar, like the block
 navigation block.

 There's a small improvement here in the plugin, there's now a parent block
 selector button on the toolbar. I'm not sure if this is what you're
 referring to. The only thing is that it won't display the reusable block
 icon if you're editing a deeply nested block, like one within a column
 within a reusable block.

 The other way of telling is the breadcrumb at the bottom. But I know
 that's not always the apparent UI. There are some github issues with ideas
 for improving these things for reusable blocks:
 - https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/29337
 - https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/29178
 - https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/28285

 > When the user saves a page, the right bar shows "some" options.

 The third point seems mostly about workflow and saving. There are some
 issues tracking this as well:
 - https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/29871
 - https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/29269

 > The resuable blocks don't have revisions.

 This one is being tracked here -

 To get an overview of reusable blocks there's an overview here:

 Finally, as you may have gathered, the block editor users github for an
 issue tracker, so I'd recommend searching, commenting and creating issues
 there if you have an account.

 I think that covers everything—it seems there are generally github issues
 that cover your concerns, so I'll close this trac issue so as not to
 duplicate things.
