Based on this conclusion, which had no objections, I've removed two
paragraphs from the description of 'column-fill':

<p>In continuous media, this property will only be consulted if the
length of columns has been constrained. Otherwise, columns will
automatically be balanced. 

<p>In continuous media, this property does not have any effect in
overflow columns (see below).

<p>In paged media, this property will only have
effect on the last page the multicol element appears on.

The new editor's draft is available here:
