Block Widgets -- no Title heading fields?

Unless this was overlooked or a bug, while testing WP 5.8 RC, I noticed that block widgets with the new screen and methods do not have a widget title/heading field. This really needs to be included (incl. a method to enable/disable the title).

I also noticed that when switching back to the classic widgets (using the plugin), the block widgets simply are titled as Block: 1. There is no title/heading field on the widgets when it's back in the classic form.

This is a very important function to have included. Right now the only option is to add another block for headings--which simply saturates the admin and page with blocks and adds even more steps just to add a widget title.

Currently you have to add heading, then the wanted (block based) widget, then group them together. Repeat for next widget. Then you can sort the groups.

Bugs in the new widget editor have probably made it hard to discover this half baked solution earlier.

Howdy! I think we can close this and move ahead with the upstream issue.
