Hi Nicolas,

RenderX XEP avoids extensions when a standards-based solution is
available. In your case, imposing keep-together on last few words of
each paragraph solves the problem. A way to control 'widow-words' is
desirable, but simply 'avoid-widow-words' creates complex problems by
resolving simple ones.

Introducing formal control over line break constraints at paragraph
edges requires work; the XSL WG is up to doing this kind of work --
and accepts suggestions.
