This works except that the ornament is in some cases placed on the next page. — My question is whether it is possible to do a \testpage and evaluate the result hereof and then using either the placement of the ornament and stop the section or just end the section without ornament?

You can put your setups *inside* the test:



The before=/after= pair is used when a page break is forced by the test, inbetween= is used if there is no forced break.

(\testpage is a wrapper around \checkpage:
