uiwanted: Should there be at least one placeholder as a hint to the user that more will come in and they can be edited/added? If so, how many. If not, what sites should fill in the 7th/8th position for each desired geo?

I discussed with Bryan and he thinks we can leave it since it shows the user they can add sites (in theory). Will confirm at UX meeting tomorrow with the rest of UX/product.

Discussed at the UX meeting and it was decided to kick this can down the road. We'll ship fresh profiles with two placeholders on wide screens for now.
uifeedback: Don't do this for 60 (or 61) as it requires additional decision on which sites, imagery, legal, etc. Also, deferring on decision on if we do add more defaults, should there be at least 1 empty to help hint at adding new sites.

AFAIK, the default nowadays(91.0a1) is to deliver 8 tiles placeholders + 1 row topsides enabled as default for new profiles with the default topsites coming from RemoteSettings top-sites configuration since Fx87, hence I think there is nothing actionable here. Marking as WFM, please reopen if I misunderstood the intent here.
