I’m also looking for a solution to this as I’ve created blocks that are only meant for use in the Header & Footer widget areas and want to restrict their use to only those. Unfortunately putting them into the widgets category doesn’t restrict them to at least the widgets page, it just puts them in that category.
Looking forward to this being available.
