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.

My 2 cents,
