Hi Fantasai,

Since the descriptions are wrong in the specs that do not account for
box-decoration-break, we cannot reference CSS 2.1 or multi-column. So for
normative reference, it seems it the best option is to reference
css3-break. It seems we should also have multi-column reference css3-break.

Is that right?

Vincent
