With the examples, I got your point: 

In your first example, the col 3 of row 2 is put on the second page,
while col 2 of row 2 is on the first page. In my opion, this output
may be possible with display-align of the third column set to "after".

As this is not the case in your example, I would consider this a bug.

Generally I agree. To put it more precise:

1. The cells of a row with keep-together condition should first of all
   be kept on one page.

2. If that condition cannot be met, the row should be split. How this
   may be done depends on keep and break conditions of the cells.

3. If the row is split, all cells with the display-align "before" should
   start on the first page.

   Cells that are aligned to the bottom of the row must end on the page,
   where the tallest cell ends.
