Comment (by pento):

 I've been thinking about this ticket a little bit. There's
 [https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/41006 a corresponding PR] to
 add Pocket Casts to Gutenberg, which I have no concern with.

 The issue I'm pondering is that we've historically kept the Gutenberg
 embed variations list and the oEmbed allow list in sync: this just happens
 to be the first instance (that I'm aware of) of an embed provider that
 already works with auto-discovery.

 Since the practice of keeping them in sync has been driven by necessity,
 rather than a formal requirement, it's not a huge deal to break away from
 it. That said, this seems like a good opportunity to formalise the
 practice: do we intentionally keep the lists in sync (even if the
 occasional embed provider doesn't strictly need to be added to the allow
 list), or do we allow them to fall out of sync?

 It's worth noting that they're not entirely in sync right now: Meetup was
 [https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/35085 removed from
 Gutenberg], but not Core; and it looks like Someecards was added to Core,
 but never to Gutenberg.

 @peterwilsoncc: Do you have thoughts on what would be the more
 maintainable practice?
