 I remember this logic being used to not fix the problems with the menu
 edit screen which fails on very large menus due to max_input_vars, the
 retort to that for a long time was “use the brand new customizer” because
 it didn’t have this problem.  Only, the customizer was and still is awful
 for managing large menus.

 These types of issues need to get fixed, not kicked down the road for
 another 10 years.

 @jorbin in my experience it’s way more likely large existing sites won’t
 be moving to Gutenberg soon if ever. They’re way less likely to be doing
 that because of the large existing content library doesn’t really “convert
 to Gutenberg”. Some have a lot of custom code rendered completely useless
 by Gutenbergs markup.  I think a more accurate phrasing would be “large
 well funded sites are moving to Gutenberg”,  but not all large sites have
 the resources to make that transition.  This still needs to get fixed for
 them and for all the corners of WP that still use the classic editor.
