 In 6.0 there's is this text about the new layout setting:
 ''Customize the width for all elements that are assigned to the center or
 wide columns.''

 That is a really confusing text. I would avoid the wording of "columns"
 cause that conflicts when users are inside a column block.
 I do found this layout setting a complex setting; as it only has effect on
 "internal" blocks; and the Wide setting has only effect on those block
 that are able to set Wide like an image, but not a paragraph block.

 And more: when users our inside a Column of a Column block, they also have
 a Width setting of that particular Column. That's even more confusing,

 I do wonder if WordPress would still needs such a profound setting like
 this. And have more the basic settings.

 But if this continious, which probably will. Please do change the text;
 for example:

 ''**Customize the width for all blocks inside that layout element. The
 Content value sets the general width of every block. The Wide value sets
 the width of every block that is able to have a wide alignment.**''
