I18N Matter for Progress:

The spec says :
"If the value <http://whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#value4>attribute
is omitted, then user agents must also parse the
textContent <http://whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#textcontent0> of
the progress <http://whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#progress0>element
in question using the steps
for finding one or two numbers in a
These steps will return nothing, one number, one number with a denominator
punctuation character, or two numbers."

In Step for finding one or two number
It's only look for 0-9 number.

So what about number in other languages ?

So why not forcing use of <code>m</code> element for numbers

<progress><m>30</m> out of <m>45</m></progress>

in that case m has to be a number in whatever encoding even in RTL it will
be parsable
