Part of focusing on being a CMS require to minimize the need of a user to know platform specific concepts. WordPress moving to have an actual editor in the text widget was a good move, but it was not followed with deprecating the HTML part. We are going to do this deprecation.

For this we will need a core plugin that lets users insert and edit raw HTML in a widget. There are just to many use cases relating to third party services which are not even bothering to give a non "HTML copy and paste" type of integration to WordPress itself, so the need for something like that is a fact of life, even if we would like to avoid having it in core.

Than we need to see an upgrade path for current text widgets that use raw HTML, into the new core plugin.

Actually WordPress has an "custom HTML" widget that can be used to insert raw html into a widget. All that is needed to do here is to remove the raw HTML functionality from the text widget

"Add media" button is not displayed after the previous commit. Need to dig deeper into the JS :(
