Do you still think this after our discussion in
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=404215 ?

For those who don't want to read the bug, the problem is that you can have
content which always overflows the column height; for example the last child
of the columns element might be position:relative and top:100px.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
