@eaenet and I were just talking about this. We may need to tighten the
 wording further for when we fragment in the block direction. For 

.container {
  column-count: 2;
<div class=container>
<span class=cb>
<span class=abs1></span>
  text which spans<!-- column break --> over two columns.
<span class=abs2></span>

In the above example two fragments are produced.
1) "text which spans"
2) "over two columns"

Which fragment should the `.abs1` and `.abs2` elements "anchor" to?

I think anchoring to the fragment which would have contained the 
absolute child if it wasn't out of flow makes the most sense?
