The other thing to think about is how this will work with a screen reader. For progress it will default to using aria-valueText but this isn't read by NVDA, likely due to a bug on their part. The progress component will soon have the option to fall back to aria-valueText but currently it is an either or solution decided by the integrator.

The words "Restart the demo" is a hyperlink that resets the demo to its initial state. Otherwise the user can press the Submit button again to have the progress indicator appear once again.

I understand it's re-enabled for the sake of demoing the progress indicator again, but beyond that, is there much reason for a user re-submitting a successfully submitted order? The demo-er can already reset the demo and click submit again.

There is a status box stating "Confirm and submit your order"  which asks the user to review their order and and then select the Submit button near the bottom of the display. After reviewing the following list of groceries, the user activates Submit.
