Well, it's really up to the widget itself, isn't it? It doesn't make
sense for all widgets to be available in more than one place at the
same time.

A multi-widget is multi, a single widget is single.

Again, I feel like I'm confused. There's nothing to contribute here,
the text widget is multi, the rest of the defaults are not, and that's
pretty much that. Why would you wan tthe meta widget to be multi, for
example? It makes no sense.
