Make the maintenance page while updates are happening editable

When core/plugin/theme/translation updates are happening, the website displays a default page that there is maintenance on the site and requesting the visitors to come back later...

It would be cool I think if this page can be edited to add for example your company logo or your own text.

Well, this requires some php editing yourself... I think it might be more helpful if you can edit in some sort of GUI...

I understand, but IMHO, this is plugin territory - as so many cool, special features.

I agree that this is probably plugin material.

However, I do wonder what this could look like with the block-based site editor and block themes. It would require some investigation, but it may be possible to allow a maintenance template to be edited within the site editor. This is likely not straightforward though, as there is (intentionally) a very minimal amount of WordPress functionality available when a site is in maintenance mode.

Creating a ticket upstream on the Gutenberg GitHub repository would be the best place to discuss this, though.
