    initial v1  
    33I agree with this in principle (and read it when you said the same basic thing before). The difference is that that’s more of a long-term, 5.x solution, since as far as I know it would require a database schema change to implement the concept of “widget groups” as distinct from “widget zones.”

    5 What I was proposing was more of a stop-gap until then, something that could be implemented in 4.5, that would require only a UI change without any change at all to the database schema. And even it would have some use once the widget groups are implemented in, say, 5.0, as the drop-down could be used to quickly move a whole group of widgets from one zone to another from within the Customizer in Live Preview mode on an inactive theme.
