What happens to text-wrap balance if there's a fragmentation break within the balanced lines. Do you still balance the whole thing, or do you balance fragment by fragment?

When both fragmentainers have the same width, the former sounds simpler and just as good, but if they do not, the later may be better. Or maybe we still balance all fragments together, but we need to account for the difference in line length, similarly to how we deal with floats.

Or maybe we just say bail out and say something like:

  UAs must treat this value as normal if there is a fragmentation break in the element.
