== [css-multicol] Pass at incorporating the new model plus clarification in the issue re naming ==
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/1072

Given the fiddliness of this I have opened a PR. I'm just looking at this first part now, with regard to the inclusion of the new model plus the naming we discussed. If we can get this right I'll go through the spec looking for any naming problems that fall out of it. I'll address the parts that deal with spanners specifically separately. I wanted to sort all these anonymous boxes first.

1. I think we essentially add an extra container (2 in @frivoal's writeup in the issue) when we do this, I've attempted to write that in. We end up with multiple multicol rows in the case of pagination (these contain the box 1 in @frivoal's writeup) and spanners. In future we might then add the concept or rows being created in the block dimension by height restricting the row.

2. This means a bit of a change to the text below that about gaps, and clarification that gaps are the same across all rows and lines in the container, even if we have multiple rows, or a spanner creates multiple lines.

Please let me know any thoughts.
