Hmm.  I guess that's OK; if someone styles it as display:inline they're 
asking for the non-default handling.

Ah.  I grabbed my list from code, not specs.  When our powers combine....

It certainly is in Gecko.

And I don't see how it wouldn't be per spec.  Given

   <progress>Some text</progress>

in a browser supporting <progress>, is the "Some text" rendered?  If 
not, it's clearly a replaced element.

I would assume <meter> is the same; I missed that one because it wasn't 
in the code I was looking at.  ;)
