    6 So to be honest, I didn't pay attention to the other form data, but I believe it should be passed to the superglobal to keep WP 5.8 backward compatible with legacy widget.

    88For the 'sidebar', I believe it's legit to expose this information somewhere because `\WP_Widget::update` is called from `\WP_REST_Widgets_Controller::save_widget` which has this information as the second argument.
