Yes, this is the definition of forced breaks: http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-css3-break-20120823/#break-properties

> On the other hand in order to fix the issue with <br> elements is enough with adding "content: "";" in the CSS (as in the attached example). Because of before/after pseudo-elements are not applied if they don't have content. This is not needed for <span> elements because of they always have a content (at least an empty string).

I am confused about your mention of pseudo-elements. I see the fix with the content but i would rather see what it takes to fix it in the code. Probably such a fix would also fix for multicolumn element in this case.
