Were there any religious reasons for the decision? Not at all, it was a very profane reason.

Was the decision made so that people could have more idle time? This was a possible side effect, but not the main intention of those who made the decision.

Were they creating or expanding some pagan practice/rite? Not at all. The puzzle is just about table music = music played during mealtime. You may try to find the lateral link to Telemann .. Why did he publish the Table Music?

Did Telemann like to eat? Possibly. This is already somewhat the right forest.

Did Telemann simply want to have more free time? make more money? get more press? have more feasting? push table music on folk? make more time for sex?

Did Telemann simply want to have more free time? No.
make more money? This, in the first place.
get more press? And this, of course.
have more feasting? Feasts, where his music was played, yes.
push table music on folk? well, yes.
make more time for sex? Maybe, but not relevant here.
The main point is that Telemann put together several rather unrelated pieces and published them, in order to make some money and to gain more popularity. Now explore the idea "table music -> more income" for the second situation...

Did he want the money for one specific purpose? This is not recorded, and not really relevant here. Relevant is that he took it together and made some money of it.

Did the second event involve performing Telemann's Table Music?
Did it involve performing another collection of music while people were eating?
Was the meal delayed so that more music would be heard?

Was the meal extended so more frivolity could be perpetuated, and the music producers get richer?

Is the basic idea that some entity (whether singular or plural) increased the time for music to be played and thus make more money off the tunes?

Is the basic idea that some entity Yes. (whether singular or plural This one, it was a group of 4-5 people.) increased the time for music to be played Yes. and thus make more money off the tunes? Yes, in some lateral sense. The music helped them to make more money.
