Content Search Webpart with targeting audience property, in Modern View

The actual Content Search Webpart with targeting audience property is not available for Modern View pages.
This is a great web part functionality that should be preserved in the modern view, is very useful in several item segmentation scenarios.

        The highlighted content Webpart (HCWP) in SP-Online lacks some functionality which was very useful for building top-notch search-driven intranets in SharePoint On-Premise with the use of the CSWP.
        Please enhance the HCWP with the following functionalities:
        1. Possibility to enter audiences (target audience). This info is then used to "steer" which audience can see the Webpart on the page. Example: If I provide the audience "back office worker" in the HCWP, then only those people in the "back office worker audience" can see the webpart on the page, and the "frontline" workers won´t see the webpart on the page.
        2. Possibility to not only do an "or"-"chain" refinement, but to use a combination of "and" and "or" refiners. Example: Highlight Content with Metadata (Managed Property/MP) Year ["2016" or "2017"] and MP Subject "NDA"
        With above and/or combination, the HCWP would show all Docs with the managed Property "NDA" from Year 2016 and 2017, but not from Year 2015 (and so on) and no other Docs with another subject like... i.e. "user manual". It should be possible to "chain" and "group" those and/or connections in Blocks. So something like Show Documents with MP Year ["2016" or "2017"] and MP Subject ["NDA" or "User manual"] would be possible
        MP Year ["2016" or "2017"] and MP Subject "NDA" and MP Location "Los Angeles" would be possible
        and so on.
        Such statements are currently not possible to build.

        The CSWP was a very powerful way to show relevant content and make it look the way that you want it to. The new highlighted content webpart is not customizable enough.
