[NTG-context] question about unwanted locations of pagebreaks

The very last thing to do when finalizing a multi-page document is
checking where the page breaks occur, and make corrections accordingly, if
the pagebreak occurs at a location you do not want.

Of course, you can take all kind of measures on before hand to avoid 'bad'
places, like avoiding pagebreaks directly after a new section and before
any of the body text, etc. But the degrees of freedom for context to
handle this and to avoid (typographically) 'bad' pagebreak locations are I
suppose limited.

Is there a way (already implemented) in Context in which one can add some
degrees of freedom to avoid bad pagebreak locations. For instance with
elements that can vertically stretch (between some minimum and maximum
value) and can be placed optionally (and which could for instance include
a fancy decoration, like fancybreak module provides)?

(I guess this is also the way in which typesetters in the past dealt with
this problem).

Greetings,

Rob
