Block Hooks: Enable for post content

The Block Hooks mechanism is currently enabled for templates, template parts, patterns, and Navigation menu -- i.e. parts of a site's layout that are edited in the Site Editor. It is not enabled for post content: Hooked blocks won't be inserted into a post (or page), even if the latter contains the corresponding anchor block.

Prior to #59646, this was due to a technical limitation. However, with that limitation removed, we could consider enabling Block Hooks for post content.

This might have some benefits -- among other things, it might align better with users' expectations. But maybe there are also reasons to refrain from doing so?

One potential downside of enabling this that I can think of vs templates is when a plugin has hooked a block into my Single Post/Page template I can remove that block from that one template.

If the block has been hooked into my content I'd have to potentially go through each individual post/page to remove it.
