Overflow should be rendered as part of the fragmentation context
of its containing block.

So, for example, let's consider an abspos element inside a multicol
element. If the abspos's containing block is an element inside the
multicol element, then it will fragment across the columns and
otherwise participate in the multicol's fragmented flow. If the
abspos's containing block is the multicol box or an ancestor of it,
then it will not fragment across the columns (but may fragment, e.g.
across pages if the document is printed).
