Thank you for those pointers.

Right -- or just shifting the figure upward by one paragraph or so.  In
a long document like a book, pagebreaks need to be adjusted by hand at
the end anyway to avoid long stretches of unused bottom space.
Adjusting the figure placements slightly can become part of that
process.
