Yep, sounds reasonable.

Err no. That might be your or even my version.
I've slowly learned that its rarely a universal.

>Unfortunately, it's difficult to put together good test cases that show the behavior, but in a document we're working with that has lots of screenshots we had lots of pages where the image was pushed to the next page, while the text that introduced it was on the previous page, sometimes with lots of blank space. 

Mmm/ Messy.

A standard markup, then customisation, sounds about right for that.
Then I'd recommend a 'keep-with-next' with high priority.

I was surprised to see you drawing it 'side by side' which
is float end style, hence my comment.
