The position IDL in progress element[1] is not necessary, since
authors/developers already have both value and max attributes in DOM (position
is basically = value/max -- when both max and value are defined). Being
read-only, it contributes almost nothing.

Since position represents the percentage of progress completion (between 0.0
and 1.0), another option would be to drop the read-only constraint on the
position IDL and oblige user agents to compute and update the respective value
when setting a given position. In that case, if the progress bar was an
indeterminate progress bar, UAs might ignore changes to position attribute.
