 The current *intended* behavior in WebKit is that the anonymous block 
 that encloses the spanning elements establish a BFC, and that the 
 spanning elements do not.
 
 Feel free to file a bug on me with that test case, although I suppose 
 we can wait and see what's officially decided first.

This makes more sense to me than just collapsing margins outside BFC. If the intent is for consequent colspans to behave as normal flow, I think this is the best choice.
