It could be argued that leaving it is more confusing to future readers of the spec however given that we define column-gap elsewhere, and this a chance to sort that out. 

Either way there should be a note explaining what happened, but it seems neater to have that note explaining the current situation, column-gap is now defined in box alignment and so we moved it, than explaining that column-gap is defined in box alignment but we also left it hanging around here because of history.

This came up because I was reading the spec with a group of authors in a workshop, and it seemed odd to explain this - their expectation was that this would be defined alongside the gap property for grid and flex.

In addition, the break properties were moved from the spec at some point so we already have one situation where we have done this.
