Come to think of it: this approach could solve the problem with using  
just one fo:table-row as well. The only thing to remember there, is to  
also set space-before.conditionality to retain. Since the page-break  
happens within the confines of the table-cell, there is no fence  
between the empty block, and the following one, so this would result  
in the space being discarded.

So, to summarize the proposed workaround/FO hack, in the original  
sample, you would only need to add something like:

  ... This text should be on the first page.</fo:block>
   <fo:block space-before.optimum="5cm"
             space-before.conditionality="retain" />

And probably also between the second and third pages, to make sure all  
of the remaining content in the first column ends up on the second page.
