In the list of use cases, which presumably all are in scope, you list:

  Flowing content between arbitrary areas
  Flowing content into arbitrary areas
  Flowing content *around* arbitrary areas
  Controlling the interplay between overlapping shapes
  Fancy illustration layout
  Dropcap exclusion
  Magazine layouts

How can you then conclude that exclusions between columns are not in
scope? Especially since this was example #1 in what Steve posted.
Where is the description of the scope?
