As far as I can see, column balancing is not really defined as a mechanism in the XSL recommendation. My interpretation so far is that to do column balancing if a spanned block follows on the same page and not to do it if no spanned blocks follows, is one of several allowed user agent behaviours - and the one that makes the most sense as a default. If your or someone else finds something in the XSL recommendation that more precisely defines what should happen, I would be grateful for a pointer as well.
