If it is a matter of convenience, why is it read-only then? It would be pretty
convenient if the author could change the "position" of the progress bar
without having to access the values of "value" and "max". The author that
accesses the "position" is the same that changes it, so it is contradictory to
say that it would be convenient if the authors will still have to use "value"
and "max" anyways.

In regards to the term "percentage", it is valid, since the range 0...1
represents a percentage from 0% to 100%, which is the range of a progress bar.
100% is 100/100, which is 1. I don't understand your point. My point, however,
is that the term "position" is misleading and does not properly describe the
range "0...1" whatsoever. Anything else like "percentage", "completion" or
whatever you want to call it would be better for the reasons I already
explained.
