Because in turbulent air it is common to see speed increase in unwanted manners.
So i was being ironic, basically.

The usual recommendation for going through rough air is to decrease speed (under vra), not increase the maximum allowable. I dont have my book right now but the max speed increased from 230kt to 280kt when in rough air, which seems absurd.

I will google that icao doc tomorrow
