When I go to the list of use cases for Regions and Exclusions, which
are linked from the Regions WD:

  http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css3-regions/regions-use-cases

I see many fancy examples, which presumably are in scope?

For example, you write:

  The following image illustrates the need to be able to flow content
  around an arbitrarily shaped area.

Shouldn't you also have an example, with Steve's pull-quote image,
where you say:

  The following image illustrates the need to be able to insert an
  element between two columns.

Arron, are you planning to add column-based positioning there? 

Again, there is a proposed solution in GCPM:
