Well just to keep things simple, I'm going to say that Vne for my plane is 136KTAS. If that means that according to the POH, my safety margin increases as I go higher that's a good thing. Then I only have to look at one speed readout and it doesn't matter if the margin magically disappears at 16,001' for no apparent reason while I’m on my way to a new altitude record. Anyway, since I can only get to 136 kts in any system of measurement in a dive, if I'm forced to descend at an angle somewhat less than vertical, I can live with that too. I'll just enjoy the view for a bit longer.
