I agree.

I just changed lime for white in the test and then white for black.

The <span> color is black but its background is transparent. And there
is a soft (unforced) column break affecting the 3rd <span> element. The
3rd <span> element is broken across 2 column boxes.

4 <span> elements instead of 5 will also work. But 5 <span> elements
should also work.

Yes.
