It could probably use some additional love to also reveal the state (aria-expanded?) and perhaps a way to direct screen readers to the actual details block when it's visible.

I don't think that should be part of the scope of this ticket though, but rather should be its own enhancement ticket.

For the sake of clarity, this is about the dealy in the GIF below. On /wp-admin/update-core.php when you update multiple themes/plugins at once.
