WordPress 4.8 Text Widget Restoration

I am a wordpress developer and I have made about 200+ websites on wordpress platform.

Most of my clients are bloggers whose site uses sidebar text widgets for various functions such as html sign up box and lot more.

The introduction of visual editor in text widget is messing up all the custom html code.

I request to restore the text widget back to its original version and introduce a separate widget called rich text widget.

Restoration of text widget is important because one cannot afford to migrate the text widgets incase if text widget is not restored to original version.
