Media Modal: Consider redesigning "Link to" pattern

Description

From both experience and usability testing, it seems that “Link to” as a dropdown in the Media Modal isn’t a great interaction pattern. Could we explore some other options that might be more clear or intuitive?

What if we we were to change things up and make it a radio button pattern, instead of a dropdown?

Radio buttons seem like a simple improvement that would improve discoverability 👍

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Discussed during today's accessibility bug-scrub and we don't have objections to try radio buttons, definitely something worth trying. Moving to future release.

Note: in the wireframe above, the URL input field misses a visible <label> element.

I'd also like to remark, kindly, that this ticket was created 14 months ago and still there's no feedback from the Media component maintainers.
