This issue itself is big but it can, and will, be divided into smaller issues (some already exist). Trying to implement any of the missing features above is a great way to start contributing to Gutenberg with code. Also reviews of open PRs, suggestions and perspectives on open issues, are of great value as well. If you want to help but have questions, please leave a comment here so we can discuss what would be the best next step for you.
I recommend checking out the Custom Post Type block from Getwid. It is essentially a latest posts block for any post type. The template used for each of the posts in the list can be modified using the block editor. In other words, you can use the block editor to build a latest post item template, and then choose that template in the display settings of the block.
It was certainly one of the most creative uses of the block editor I've seen in a plugin, and I think it could be used as inpsiration for something similar in core.
