Create more flexible structure for handling of feeds in admin news widgets

Currently (in WordPress 6.3), the Admin widget "WordPress events and News" uses two feeds for presentation of WordPress news:

(currently, the widget shows the headlines for the two latest posts in the "news" feed and the headlines for the three latest posts in the "Tavern" feed. But this configuration has changed at various points: some posts have been listed with excerpts, the number of posts has changed, etc.)

Both these URL's can be "translated", so that localized versions may, for instance, divert this to the corresponding newsfeed in their own language. Several language teams use this opportunity.

I'd like to propose a more flexible structure for these posts, where a locale team would be able to configure posts to be included from 1, 2 or 3 feeds, and how many posts to pull from each of these feeds.

It would probably be good to visualize to the user what feeds are used, along with their names.
If we lift this out of the localization structure to some Meta-structure, then we might even allow users to select a different locale's feed configuration (or even configure their own.
