Gutenberg has a LONG way to go before it can replace most page builders. Things that would have to be completed in Gutenberg before any page builder should be fearful are:

  1. Much easier templating system
  2. Better control over element/module attributes
  3. Layouts and grids need massive work on Gutenberg
  4. A COMPLETE REWRITE OF HOW GUTENBERG SAVES CONTENT IN THE DATABASE... saving "layout" comments in the WordPress database post table is just plain stupid and until that is changed, Gutenberg will never replace page builders.
