    initial v1  
    11Howdy @MattyRob and thanks for the ticket. In my opinion the behavior of "multiple" is the reason why this fell through the cracks and landed like this. For the new editor the Inactive area is ... how to put it ... less fake than the one in the classic editor: it really is an "inactive widget area" not an ad-hoc group that WordPress salvaged.

    55I added the "needs-design" keyword, thinking that maybe we'd need some UI to notify the user of the problem or something.
