Since people have asked me what the rationale for having <details> in the spec
in the first place was (as opposed to the rationale for having it in or out of
a particular version of the spec, which I think is an editorial issue):

The <details> element is needed to provide an accessible way of reflecting a
common application widget in HTML-based applications without requiring authors
to use extensive scripting, ARIA, and platform-specific CSS to get the same
effect.

HTH.
