I will suggest adding extra fake empty cells vertically spanned near needed
cells, so they will be forced to be on one page, because TBL do not breaks
There will be some extra work to make them to be not seen on paper. For
example, if table was rounded by box, there should be that box removed and
drawn by inserting "_", "|" in appropriate places.
We did so in our department a couple of years ago.

OTOH I think such tables transformation may be written in Perl, based on my
existings scripts working with tables.
