I thought multi-column properties were general, not for print media
only.  Page breaks apply only for print media.  What fantasai
suggests regarding breaks could be an additional option, but the
specification should make clear that it applies only for print
media.  

When a multi-column Web page is printed, the columns on each page
should have similar widths.  They should not vary from one printed
page to another any more than they vary on a computer monitor.
Otherwise, someone reading the printed pages may easily get confused
and distracted.

Don't ask "Why is there road rage?"  Instead, ask 
"Why NOT Road Rage?" or "Why Is There No Such 
Thing as Fast Enough?"
