Remove Custom Header Page in favor of the Customizer
|Reported by:||celloexpressions||Owned by:|
We can't really expect theme developers to use the customizer instead of theme options pages if we continue to rely on separate pages for core customization features. Additionally, the custom header screen is a bit of a mess (especially around image uploading, cropping, etc.). I was originally going to propose cleaning it up, but removing in favor of the customizer is a much better solution (also cleans up the admin menu).
The customizer provides a much better way to edit and preview these changes, and merging all of the existing options there will help encourage making the customizer the canonical place to customize themes.
Really, we only need image upload & crop support to fully duplicate functionality in the customizer (everything else's there already). Once that's in place we can look at potential back-compat concerns. Might be slightly worse than the custom backgrounds but I think we should realistically be able to remove the separate "Headers" page entirely.
