Pardon my curiosity, but what's driving this mechanism? It seems like a kludge.

I thought that I had years ago declared that a speed of 999 would mean Orbital Velocity 17,500 MPH and 998 would mean something else for high speed jets. Maybe mach 3?
Actually I may have defined three speeds greater than 999 for the last three enetries.
Clearly we need orbital velocity for the Space station, etc…
And Mach 3 for our fighter pilots…
And something for the Concord (or its replacement)…
What about Elon Musk’s hypter tube? But I think it is under 999…
Anyway, is this written down anywhere?
And if not, then here is what I propose:
999 = 17500 MPH space station
998 = 1850 MPH military
997 = 1350 MPH concord
996 = 996 MPH
