A bit later in the specification, you can see what UAs should do when there is
no value or max attributes:

"User agent requirements: If the value attribute is omitted, then the progress
bar is an indeterminate progress bar. Otherwise, it is a determinate progress

If the progress bar is a determinate progress bar and the element has a max
attribute, the user agent must parse the max attribute's value according to the
rules for parsing floating point number values. If this does not result in an
error, and if the parsed value is greater than zero, then the maximum value of
the progress bar is that value. Otherwise, if the element has no max attribute,
or if it has one but parsing it resulted in an error, or if the parsed value
was less than or equal to zero, then the maximum value of the progress bar is

Therefore, I understand that there is no problem with the "when present"
