I want to emphasize my intent has never been to prevent such scenarios. I 
just prefer when defaults are set up in such a manner as to make the primary
use-case easier to achieve. So the claim is not that there shouldn't be
a min-column-gap behavior. Just that this may not be a suitable default for
overconstrained cases given the main use-case for multicols.
