Drag and drop blocks from backlink pane

Continuing the discussion from Paragraph-level backlinks?:

I’ve been asking for help about backlinking in another thread (and was promptly put on the right track by the lovely people of this forum). Following on from that discussion, I’m now wondering about an additional functionality for backlinks that does not currently seem to be available.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could drag and drop (or copy and paste) blocks of text directly from the backlink pane (or “Linked mentions” section) into the main body of a note? It would be immensely useful, for instance, to be able to quickly grab quotes from linked literature notes in this way, instead of having to navigate back and forth between notes.

Could a plug-in accomplish this at some point in the future or is this unlikely because Obsidian is based on pages and not blocks, as was pointed out in the linked thread?
