    I certainly don't fully understand your system and requirements, but it
    seems to me that the best solution would be to have the Function element
    generate an fo:block element *around* its children. You could then put
    a keep-together.within-column="always" property and the ID on that
    fo:block. As long as you don't put any extra space-before or
    space-after properties on the block created by the Function, that block
    shouldn't create any extra space.
