TeX and LaTeX have no effective mechanism for forbidding hyphenation 
at the end of a page. Presumably this applies to pdftex, Context etc. 
as well. The base TeX program is frozen forever, but pdftex is not.  
It conintues to evolve with addons. This could be such an addon, but 
it would require surgery to the pagemaking code and possibly the 
hyphenation code.  It could be in the nature of an increased penalty 
or a binary switch. 

Is such an addon within the charter of the pdftex wizards (Han The 
Thanh, Taco Hoekwater etc.)?
