LaTeX is pretty good in keeping section heads together with
the following material, but the tradeoff is that sometimes it
inserts massive amounts of whitespace on a page, because a section
head and a subsection head and the following first two paragraph
lines all appear after an automatically inserted pagebreak.

IIRC, it also makes float placements harder to predict.

Best wishes,
