== [css-multicol-1][css-display-3] Introduce a 'display' value for multi-column layout ==
To have control over the multi-column display defined by the `column-*` properties in the CSS Multi-column Layout 1, a `columns` value should be added to the [`<display-inside>`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-display/#typedef-display-inside) value defined in CSS Display 3.

Making column layout another display type solves the explicitly noted exclusion in other layout specs like [CSS Grid Layout 1](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-grid/#grid-container) or [CSS Flexible Box Layout 1](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-flexbox/#flex-containers) saying

> the column-* properties in the Multi-column Layout module have no effect on a * container.

in a nice way.

Furthermore, it would allow to merge the different `*-gap` properties to an `item-gap` (suggested in the [discussion about adding a flex-items gap property](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/592#issuecomment-279491532)).
