I can't answer for Elika, but it seems true to me.  If you want to
avoid a break in an element, *generally* you want to avoid it
unilaterally.

There are, of course, exceptions, which is why we're having this
conversation.  You may be okay with column breaks, or okay with breaks
across facing pages.  But these don't feel like they'll be as common a
concern.
