In cases where the height is specified to be longer than the natural
lengths of the columns, should the column rules be as long as (a) the
height or (b) the natural length?

Should column rules be clipped where column-span elements are -- or
should one have to specify a background color on the column-span
elements in order to hide the column rules?
