Comment (by andraganescu):

 This really got complicated, so complicated that it need
 [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/54910#comment:36 a drawing] to
 figure it out. There are currently [https://wordpress.org/themes/tags
 /full-site-editing/ under 50 block themes] and we appear to try and fix a
 problem that block themes have by fixing how the system works instead of
 the problem at hand. The problem appears to be that that ''the original
 idea to consider a block theme any theme that has a file named
 "index.html" in a folder named "templates" was not bullet proof''. Can't
 we fix that, I wonder, by:

 - asking the relatively, by comparison, few available block themes to
 explicitly declare themselves as block theme,
 - in a way which is compatible with our desire to make block themes "easy
 to be created and also make them serializable",
 - providing an escape hatch for users of block themes that don't update

 I think if we come up a good spec of how a block theme says "I am a block
 theme" and put up a dev note people will have time to update, as this
 whole new feature in WP is quite young. It is a better path than to
 surround one bad assumption with more relatively benign but potentially
 bad assumptions just to shield the original bad assumption.
