Block API Updates in 5.5

Coauthored by @aduth and @gziolo.

Block Categories

Of the above, a few have remained unchanged: Widgets, Embeds, Reusable.

Mappings have been added to ensure that existing blocks will be assigned to as close as possible to an equivalent category in the new set:

Common → Text Formatting →
