This is neither sane, nor consistent with existing thought on how
column spanners would work.  Column spanning elements go *below* any
preceding content; they *definitely* don't split the content of
previous columns based on where they natively sit in their original
column (in addition to being weird, it would produce a dependency
loop, as the content in the previous columns could flow differently
when split by and move the column spanner).
