Currently, the spec says that

> Column membership is determined based on the semantics of the document language only: whether and how the elements are presented is not considered.

I'm afraid that the general logic [regarding selectors that depend on layout](https://wiki.csswg.org/faq#selectors-that-depend-on-layout) would prevent applying column combinators to grid items. Regarding (multi-line) flexbox, there are no connection between items in different flex lines, so column combinator is likely not relevant there. And regarding CSS columns (and similar future fragmentation mechanisms), maybe reusing the pattern of the [page selectors](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-page-3/#page-selectors) would be more suitable for them?
