I'd also be interested in knowing whether the details element is a
block-level element or an inline element? I have been toying with it the
past weekend and it doesn't behave much like a div, for instance.

Logically, it should be a block-level element because then it could contain
lists (ul / ol), for example. (Details often come wrapped in lists).
