Justin Tadlock did a solid analysis of the proposed strategy for creating block-based themes that was published last month. Even though it is just a starting point for the discussion, it has, as Justin points out, significant implications for the WordPress community and ecosystem.

The initial outline explains the potential of exporting themes:

Ultimately, any WordPress user with the correct capabilities (example: administrator WordPress role) will be able to access these templates in the WordPress admin, edit them in dedicated views and potentially export the templates as a theme.

This is where the proposed system could revolutionize website building. Those without the coding skills to create a WordPress theme today could have the tools to contribute something back tomorrow.
