WordPress 5.2 will come with a Gutenberg block manager. It will act as a medium to disable core blocks. Maybe even add new blocks.

According to the latest update, WordPress is planning a central block directory for blocks used with Gutenberg editor. If there is no directory, then blocks will be served through a plugin. Gutenberg 5.3 will support nesting of blocks and block management modal.
