point: you don't need react. >it also makes you use React i.e. This statement is untrue :)

@MichalKleiner not really - everything is out of the box except customisation (and GridField). But customisation is never out of the box - by the very definition of the word :P

Has there been any thought of restricting blocks per elemental area?

There’s a patch fixing it that’s an open PR

You could always restrict blocks to certain page types? I do it all the time.

You can track React GridField progress in this issue: https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-admin/issues/556

As SS4 adds field types (and improves the existing ones) those will all be supported too
