XEP supports zero-width spaces correctly; the hyphenation algorithm
is internally based on them, some of our examples show their use.
But inserting a zero-width space does not make a block non-empty.
To draw a block without content but with a border place an empty
leader into a block.
To balance columns midway, insert an empty block with span="all". It works.
I will consider changing the behaviour, but really see no natural
use of borders on empty blocks, and tricky ways of their use have
less tricky workarounds without empty blocks.
