Just as a reference, other implementations of progress bars, such as XUL[1] and
Windows Forms[2], has no property such as "position".

For instance, in one that has a similar approach, Java Swing, the JProgressBar
only has a method called getPercentComplete, which led me think that besides
almost useless, the position IDL as it is specified today may be misleading,
because the term "position" in web development context also refer to the
position of the element in the page (as in CSS property).

Thus, if progress.position will continue to exist in the spec., I'd suggest at
least changing its name to "percent" or something similar.
