One more reason to avoid clipping by default is discussed in http://www.w3.org/mid/44710381-60EF-4F3D-8695-2631F9A6887E@rivoal.net :

The default styling for lists (`ol`s and `ul`s) puts padding on the list itself, rather than on the list items. If you make the list into a multicol, that means there's no space for the list markers in columns after the first one. This is annoying enough (but likely unfixable as it's been that way forever), but if we clip in the middle of the column gaps, the markers not only overflow, but also become invisible. So no clipping is better.
