FWIW I don't think we need cross-browser agreement here. In particular I
think browsers should be free to implement <details> using a
platform-native disclose widget if they like. These are not all alike
e.g. OSX uses something like ▸, Windows something like [+] (I think?)
and Gnome (at least with the skin I have) something like ▷.
