Having the computed value of one property depend on the computed values of other properties is problematic in general.  In this case, it would depend on the computed values for `column-width`, `column-count`, `display` etc.  Please also note that whether you actually get column boxes or not is decided during box construction and depends on more things than just computed values (it's not supported on most form control elements, etc). If I understand the spec correctly, these computed values would depend on the actual box type (which is decided after all computed values have already been resolved).  While that can be implemented, it requires some ugly hacks and has performance penalties.

I'd prefer to make `normal` compute to `normal`.
