I just don't like the KEEPTOGETHER tag since that is already used elsewhere in 
Paragraph styles and is in fact not totally binding. I think we should use 
'NOSPLIT' and it seems we already did! I had completely forgotten about this 

Can you try adding

('NOSPLIT', (0, 2), (-1, 3))


('NOSPLIT', (0, 1), (2, 3))

to see if this actually works for you?
