Fixes 13784
Improves frontend/backend consistency of floats. Themes (Including Twentynineteen) generally clear blocks with center alignment if they come straight after a block with left/right float.

To recreate:

1- Add two blocks with alignment options, such as the Image block.
2- Set first block to align to left/right and set second block to align to center.
3- Second block should be 100% the width and clear the float from the first block.
// Center
&[data-align="center"] {
clear: both;

I still have the same question, not sure if it was answered. This behavior only applies to the editor, do we want to apply the same behavior in the frontend too?

it makes sense to have the same behavior right?

It does for me 🤷‍♂ but maybe we're expecting the theme to define that?

This would be a PR that would be great to get as soon as possible into Gutenberg and core, as floats and alignment issues still need fixing.

@obenland or others.
Can we get an update to where this PR is at at the moment? From the above it seems almost ready for the last code review and then merge.

EDIT: Obenland told me that he does not have the time to work on this PR.
