I can take it, since it appears to be a regression due to my implementation of bug 695222.

Actually, I don't think this is a regression in our code. It's simply that the definition for 'column-fill' changed in the spec. It used to affect only containers that were height-limited, but now it affects all column elements. 

Long story short, in order to get the previous behavior back, the website needs to set 'column-fill: balance' instead of 'column-fill: auto' in its CSS. The reference for this change is here:

When I said 'column-fill', I actually meant the prefixed version, '-moz-column-fill'.

I'm the webmaster for platform.html5.org so no need for evangelism team to contact me :-) I've already made the fix, based on the info from Scott (thanks Scott!).
