 I think now is a good time to revisit this. Removing the Customizer from
 block themes likely will increase the number of people who have the
 default tagline on their site ''without even knowing about it''.

 The current text can remain in Core, but it might work better as a default
 field value only within the Customizer (if possible) for people still
 using that. Or it could be an example below the field in the Customizer
 and/or Settings.

 If a (visible) Tagline field becomes part the installation process, that
 would involve editing two network files (site-new.php and wp-signup.php)
 besides install.php.

 If we also want to encourage changing the tagline for existing sites, we
 could reopen #38316 to set the option to an empty string for new
 installations, and then address existing installations on this ticket
 separately. (That ticket is very closely related to this one, but it's not
 an exact duplicate.)
