Rossen and Fantasai are writing the spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-break/


You are right, it is essential for interop for anything that involve fragmentation, including printing and multicol.

Who's going to work on this? IMHO, it is a) hard and b) essential to have interop on *before* regions and other "fragmenters" get popular, which could be soon after experimental implementations ship.

We've survived without interop on vertical breaking for a long time, but I think only because Web designers don't strive for exact page layouts in most cases, and haven't used multicol much for various reasons.
