That's right. It's an arbitrary amount of data spread across variable
structural levels.

The hack I came up with was to simply limit the depth of the body area
until the content I had looked "balanced". In my case I only need this
for one small part of the document, so I could make it a run-time
parameter. Ugly, but it will work.

So column balancing is not provided for in 1.0. That's not good. That
precludes a large number of common presentation styles.
