I don't know of the use case for mixed writing modes and table 
fragmentation (although I am sure that with a bit of digging, we could
 find something).

Putting that aside, for table row orphans/widows, I've run into the 
requirement into documents with dense data table, and it was judged 
bad to have for example 12 rows of data on one page/column and 1 row 
on the next, and we're rather have 11/2 or 10/3.

I agree that there is a good chance that there is an analogue with 
grids, so it is worth considering. At the same time, a table row is 
often a single line of text, and that's in these cases that the 
property would be most desirable. I don't think that's nearly as 
frequent with Grid, but I could be wrong.
