Manage Post trackbacks within the REST API

I've noticed, unlike the Classic Editor, the Blocks Editor does not include a place to add trackbacks to a post. After looking more into it, I've found a possible reason for it could be that the WP_REST_Posts_Controller doesn't support adding trackbacks.

I believe it's weird the Blocks Editor includes a Discussion panel saying Allow pingback and trackbacks although it's only possible to add trackbacks from the Classic Editor.

I suggest the attached as a primarily step before working from the Gutenberg GH repo to suggest a way to deal with this feature.

In the meantime, if some of you need to send trackbacks from the Blocks Editor, you can use this plugin.
