regard it as a feature that excessive framing is not supported.

its a perpetual bugbear in jadetex. sometimes, when one looks at a
particular document, it boils down to lack of any `looseness' in  a
page design, which forces TeX to make a least-bad choice (which, to
it, means leaving the heading on the end of the page). I have yet to
make jadetex 100% obey the `keep together' directives
