comment How can I control the minimum number of lines (rows) that should be kept together when a page break is necessary?
Ah, I see. You'd need to know the total num of items…so you loop through all items first by using #4. You need \jkoitem to count up to the total. You need \jkoitemx to count down to trigger the alternate glue only when reaching the last two items. I am not sure how to do this in LaTeX2 or LaTeX3.

I get that #1 and #3 correspond to \jcode[HL7-Path, Name \hfill R/O, Rep\#] and everything in the next [], respectively, but what do #2 and #4 represent in jcode? Maybe you could look at my attempt at translating your code into LaTeX (bottom of my question).

I don't get why you used jkoitem and jkoitemx. Why not just use the if/then logic in jkoitem? Is this understanding correct: you define an unbreakable \jkoitem that assigns itself to \jkoitemx that becomes breakable if the count is < 2?

It's ok to use TeX. In fact, I've been reading through the TeXBook. I think I might have outgrown LaTeX. Without truly understanding TeX, I do not think I can effectively code in LaTeX (unfortunately).

@cfr The problem with using tables is that the syntax is so bad for writing descriptions in the last column (which I don't even have in a column as you can see in the output). Tables aren't really good for paragraph data. But maybe I should reconsider using it. Maybe I can even wrap the longtable by my environment.
