Edit permalink slug in Gutenberg post only possible after clicking "save as draft"

Reporting the first time to core, so I hope that is the correct place.

The UX and workflow is different on post and pages when it comes to Gutenberg. It makes sense to be easily able to set the slug of a post before publishing. This is especially important when clients are adding post content. It must be made as obvious and easy as possible to them.

Posts with Gutenberg
Add a post with Gutenberg, you'll see you must save as draft first to be able to edit the slug

Posts with Classic Editor
Adding a post with Classic Editor enabled, will allow to set the permalink slug right away.

Page with Gutenberg
Not tested by myself, but got the information from the community. When editing pages with Gutenberg, the workflow is differently. It's possible to edit the slug right away. So it seem only with native posts this behaviour is incorrect.
