It's not about borders on the column boxes themselves. It's about block
content inside the column.

It seems to me that everywhere someone uses borders to highlight a block,
they'll probably want border-break:close if that content is paginated or in
a column.

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
