If everybody agrees on this, then let's redirect the paging issue to css-break.


However, this does leave us with the overflow/clip issue of floats. We clearly haven't reached interop on this either and this is certainly in the scope of css-multicol. 

I see two possible outcomes:

- Clip like anything in the flow (3 implementations do this)
- Overflow in the following columns, but then we should extend the exclusion zone to the next columns too (no implementation do this, but FireFox is close).
