I'd say that the main side effect will be for people (ab)using tables for
layout. If you have a cell that contains lets say 10 lines and the whole cell
suddenly gets moved to the next page, this will likely make quite a few persons
frustrated, wondering what happened.

Before changing this I would strongly suggest that we add the option to the
dialog that is shown when pressing Ctrl + F12. When testing this issue I
noticed that the split button was changed into a drop down button which hides
these options even more. On the other hand I'm not to found of split buttons so

Btw. have a look at Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Writer -> Table. It would
be great to have the default setting set-able there. Wishful thinking from my
side, possibly horrifying for some of the UX-people. ;)  

I will however add that this is a setting that I pretty much always change,
along with ticking in that the first row should be considered a heading row
that should be repeated if broken across a page break. This is not only for
accessibility reasons but because I want the data in the cells to be kept

I'd be careful changing this behavior, at least until we have a check box in
the options dialog and the insert table dialog.
