http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/ uses status.js and
status.css to create a popup showing status.

It shows status of the section (such as "Awaiting implementation
feedback" or "Controversial Working Draft"), the number of tests, the
number of demos, implementation status for each of (in practice) 5
implementations, and last-updated information.


Am I correct in believing that the implementation statuses would
ideally be a set of <progress> elements, even though the progress
level won't be likely finish (or even change) during one reading?
(And the same for overall section status?)

If so, it looks like this is an example of wanting to style based on
an arbitrary number of categories/thresholds (here done with classes),
and also a fairly good example of the sort of styling that might be
desired.  (Currently done with dt/dd for the implementation status.)
