The <progress> element is the only way to get a progress bar that matches the
native look and feel of the platform. It can also provide built-in
accessibility support without having to rely on an author or script library
doing it by hand. Basically the same thing as <input type=button>, but for
progress indicators instead of buttons. Granted, progress bars are not as
common in typical UI as buttons, but they seem common enough to support
directly.

(It's unclear to me how you would use RDFa to make a progress bar, but I can't
imagine it makes things any simpler.)
