This is a limitation of XEP.

With XEP, the only way to achieve it is to split rx:flow-section into 
chunks, avoiding nesting.

<fo:flow>
   <!-- content on single-column page -->
   <rx:flow-section column-count="2">
     <!-- content on two-column section -->
   </rx:flow-section>
   <rx:flow-section column-count="1">
     <!-- spanning heading -->
   </rx:flow-section>
   <rx:flow-section column-count="2">
     <!-- more content on two-column section -->
   </rx:flow-section>
     ...
