Hi Guillaume,
The problem is reported correctly as an error, because actually a keep

Well, you are getting an output file that does not match the input file
in terms of the strict processing rules - the XSL FO Recommendation. The
result matches an input that is similar to the one you feed XEP with,
but differs in a missing keep constraint.

Numeric values for @keep-* are not supported
