As block areas are being explored (#13489) there should some time spent on exploring how a Site block might operate, and whether it's needed as an abstraction. Some of its salient aspects would be:

  • It's always the root block.
  • It encapsulates global styles (such as colors for body text, links, or base font sizes, line-height, etc).
  • Always occupies the full size of the editor canvas, so it's selection model is equal to nothing else being selected.
  • Certain customizer functionalities are naturally ascribed to it (background color / image, for example).
  • Can handle certain add_theme_support qualities (defines a grid, alignment widths, etc).
