 The Twenty Twenty-Two (TT2) theme currently sets a fixed `padding-top` for
 the Post Comments block:

 This makes sense in the context of where that block is used in the theme's
 templates; however, it limits the block's usefulness when the user wants
 to customize the theme by moving the block elsewhere, since it always
 comes with that hard-wired top padding.

 To remediate this, I'd suggest making the block's padding customizable
 through Inspector Controls (I believe Gutenberg has controls for block
 padding now?)

 Alternatively, the padding could be removed, and a spacer block could be
 used instead (with its height set accordingly). The downside of this
 approach is that we can't set its height to a relative value like `--wp--
 custom--spacing--small`; we'd have to assign a fixed value to it instead.
 Furthermore, this would basically revert
