[Bug 8552] Remove the Progress Element

While the best mapping of XForms' range to HTML5 would indeed most often be
adorned input (thx for reminding; I check on the proliferation of input/@type
values only occasionally), the reverse mapping would give range (used with
read-only MIP) for HTML5's proposed progress as well. Genericity of XForms' set
of controls (device independence, presentation agnosticism, features nice for
a11y, l10n and m12n) is a better approach. HTML is not a UI (actually even GUI)
language and it would be both unwise and grotesque (given the basis of HTML
forms' legacy) to extend it too much in that direction. I see two very viable
styling solutions, both author friendly. One is functional notations in
appearance values capable of expressing the necessary facets you mention. The
other is a binding (see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Sep/0739.html for something
similar). Thoughts, preferences, anybody?

Even if progress is included, I strongly prefer a styling solution which would
also be applicable beyond HTML5 (indeed, XForms comes promptly to mind).
