I'm not convinced that a single case affecting only multicol means
we should carry both concepts around in specs and implementations,
and potentially exposed to authors.  What use cases require that we
not just pick one of the behaviors for multicol, and eliminate the
other concept?

             And to whom I was like to give offense.
