In the XSL draft 1999-04-21, the properties of fo:block do
not include the Common Keeps and Breaks Properties. What is
the rationale for this?

The common uses of fo:block include titles and headlines. It's
common formatting to break before a chapter title, say, or to
ensure that a section title doesn't end up at the very bottom of
a page. Such an fo:block could always be wrapped in an
fo:display-included-container, which does allow keeps and
breaks properties, so this is not a technical limitation of
XSL -- it just leaves me curious as to why fo:block doesn't
support these properties directly.  What am I missing?
