REST API: Introduce Menu management endpoints.

This commit introduces the /wp/v2/menus, /wp/v2/menu-items and /wp/v2/menu-locations REST API endpoints. These endpoints are fully available to users with the edit_theme_options capability, but can be read by any user who can edit a REST API available post type.

The nav_menu taxonomy and nav_menu_item post type now map their capabilities to the edit_theme_options primitive capability. This allows developers to provide more fine-grained access control. However, if a developer is currently dynamically removing the edit_theme_options capability using map_meta_cap, they should use the user_has_cap filter instead.

The wp_update_nav_menu_item() function has been adjusted to return an error if saving the menu item post or assigning the menu item to a menu generate an error.

Lastly, a new menu item type is introduced, block, that can be used to store a Block as a menu item.
