Customize Themes: Improve and clarify help text — at Initial Version

The help text for the themes panel is currently somewhat misleading, as the filters are no longer in the sidebar. It could probably benefit from a more general reworking to briefly explain what themes are, why they need to be "installed," and maybe that plugins are available that offer themes from other sources (if the user can install themes and it's not multisite).

Current text:

An alternative idea would be to promote Gutenberg as the next major focus for core at the end of the 4.9 about page. That's a more appropriate place for this sort of information, and the users that see that would tend to be the ones that would be responsible for installing the plugin on their site.
