Looking at the spec, it does not seem that this behavior is invoked, even implicitly. 

Do you think it would this clarification would work? changing in css-multicol's definition of `column-span:all` from

> all: [...] Content in the normal flow that appears before the element is automatically balanced across all columns before the element appears.

to

> all: [...] A &lt;a>forced break&lt;/a> is introduced as if 'break-before: column' had been specified on the &lt;a>spanning element&lt;/a>. Content in the normal flow that appears before &lt;a>forced break</a> is automatically balanced across all columns before the element appears, and the rest resumes after the &lt;a>spanner&lt;/a>

I think this would give us a sane and consistent model. Casual testing indicates this does not seem to match what existing implementations do, but then again implementations do not seem to match each other closely either, so I do not know if we need to be bound by compat here.
