If you are relying on 'column-count' on 'region-body', no, you are stuck 
with that one figure, as you surmised. This is an XSL limitation. So on one 
page you can have areas with one column and 'column-count' columns, 
depending on how you set 'span', but that is it - 2 choices.

You might be able to do something clever if you also introduce tables.
