    initial v1  
    88Users who are not familiar with a new theme, would probably don't know how many available sidebars and where it would appear. That's why the "Widgets" section should list all the available sidebars like what "Appearance > Widgets" page does. The theme developers could put a nice description to help users find out about each sidebar and where it would appear.

    10 Or, as a theme developer, I could optionally add a custom control into each sidebar section. The control would act as a link with this text: "View pages with this sidebar". Then we can use custom JS could take advantage of this: `wp.customize.previewer.previewUrl( url )` to set the preview URL to any page that showcase the sidebar.

    1212I agree that the contextual hiding in "Widgets" panel should be disabled. It doesn't help anybody in that case. The contextual hiding could be used in other cases.
