This seems like a basic feature the engine should have? Why can't I have a flashing block or a water animated block in my tile map? Is there somewhere I can submit this as a feature request?

Godot 3.1 includes AnimatedTexture for just such purposes.

"Also, it doesn’t support AtlasTexture. Each frame needs to be separate image."

I think that the best place would be on the GitHub on the issues page (remember to post as [SUGGESTION] or something like that since the main purpose of the page is for issues.

i got it working with a shader :)
Animates an atlas in a cycle offset by frame so each instance is not, necessarily, in sync. Can select priority paint to let godot tilemap editor pick a random tile animation for you.

shader_type canvas_item;

uniform sampler2D frames: hint_albedo;
uniform float count;
uniform float duration;
uniform float width;

void fragment() {
    float frame = floor(mod(TIME, count * duration) / duration);
    float offset = floor(UV.x / width);
    COLOR = texture(frames, UV + vec2((mod(offset + frame, count) - offset) * width, 0));
