Currently, the specs say that meter should be shown vertically when
height>width but nothing similar is said for the progress element. I do believe
this should be done too given that most systems support vertical progress bars
(Windows, GNU/Linux (with GTK at least) and MacOS X). And, really, a progress
bar with a height higher than it's width wouldn't look nice...

A paragraph like this one should be added:
When the element is wider than it is tall (or square), the depiction is
expected to be of a horizontal progress bar, with the start on the right and
the end on the left if the 'direction' property on this element has a computed
value of 'rtl', and with the start on the left and the end on the right
otherwise. When the element is taller than it is wide, it is expected to depict
a vertical progress bar, with the start on the bottom and the end on the top.

Removing the end of the first paragraph would also be needed.
