I don't know the reason behind this behavior, but I don't think this
is something CSS spec need to consider.

Yes, this behavior is weird for <details>/<summary>, and I agree we
don't want to ship with that. But it doesn't affect what
presentational hint should we apply to those elements. (I don't know
the exact code here but I don't believe this would be hard to fix.)
