using keep-*="always" does prevent page breaking as Georg suggested. Why 
can't you just use keep-together on the image and its text description? 
Only if the related content is bigger than a single page do you run into 
problems. In your example of 10 images, if you place a 
keep-together="always" on the block containing the image and the image 
description then those items should be kept together and as long as they 
fit into 1 page you should need the integer keeps from FOP trunk. In 
your example of 10 images you would use 10 keep-together's.

There are some known issues with keep-with-previous especially when used 
in conjunction with tables. So I would try to avoid keep-with-previous 
and use keep-together or keep-with-next instead.
