Great, it seems we are in agreement on column balancing with specified height.

A related issue is the behavior of column-span in overflow, with specified height.

If in the following markup some column-span elements appear in overflow, it is to be defined how many columns they span:
<div style=“columns:3; height:250px;”>
                <p>AAAAAA...</p>
                <H2 style=“span: all;”>BBBBBB…</H2>
                <p>CCCCCC...</p>
                <H2 style=“span: all;”>EEEEEEE…</H2>
                <p>FFFFFF...</p>
                <H2 style=“span: all;”>HHHHHH…</H2>
                <p>IIIIIII...</p>
</div>

We think this rendering would be the most logical:

Would you agree?
