Another piece that needs to be defined is the definition of emptiness for a fragment of a block or an inline that is split by a `column-span:all` element.  That is, when you have something like:

```
      <div style="... maybe something interesting here?...">
          <h2 style="column-span: all">header</h2>
          ... other contents of the div ...
      </div>
```

under what conditions do you see pieces of the border/background of the div *before* the h2?  Are the rules different for blocks and for inlines?  Are the rules different for inlines split by a `column-span: all` from inlines split by a block?  (I'm afraid the answer to both of the last 2 questions may need to be yes.)

It's also worth thinking about the fact that a single inline element might be split *both* by a block and by a `column-span:all` element.  Those splits propagate up to different levels in the box tree.
