Actually, I would take it the other way. Why does .max reflects the content
attribute when .value reflects the "current value". I think it would be more
consistent to have .max reflecting the "maximum value".
I agree it's not solving anything but I don't thing the current specifications
makes more sense than what I propose (or solving anything...). My proposition
could be more convenient in some situations. For example, you can guess the
position when the progress element is determinate by doing
progress.value/progress.max.
