[xep-support] Space is retained when using span="all"

When a block is set to span all columns of a page any space set on this block
is always retained by XEP even if space-*.conditionality="discard". Other
formatters treat a span as a page boundary. I can not find and description of
this in the XSL-FO specification. What is the correct behaviour?

Personally I like XEP's behaviour better but it does not really do what is
expected. If the space is retained then why does not other space resolving
rules apply?

See attached file for an example.
