Jeppesen departure charts. Why oh why?

On a number of Jep departure plates, PMI and IBZ for example, the narrative for the vertical profile gives various steps and stop heights.

Then on a completely different part of the chart it gives the instruction "Do not climb above xxxxft until cleared" or words to that effect.. So easy to miss. Why do they do it this way? Why not put all the stop heights in the same place?

Can anyone explain this?

I wrote to Jeppesen (twice, Frankfurt and Denver) about this over three years ago for the particular airports you mentioned, and to date have NOT received any reply.
