Editor: Reduce clutter between title and content by hiding permalink UI

Description

The permalink UI located in between title and content creates significant visual clutter, especially on small screens.
Further, the view post and preview buttons create confusion on small screens.

I rather like the approach of hiding the permalink ui beneath an icon near the title like wordpress.com is currently auditioning.

We need to be aware of what plugins are doing. What are some plugins that hook into the permalink UI?

Replying to ryan:

I can run a more thorough search on a plugin slurp whenever it manages to finish updating, but even a quick GitHub search brings up a very large set of results for the get_sample_permalink_html hook. I imagine a number of these are taking advantage of the spot for things unrelated to the permalink.

Closing this enhancement out as the classic editor is in maintenance only mode.

The permalink UI in the block editor is in the sidebar which means there is less clutter around the post title.
