A basic fact and yet a lot of people will ream you on forums like this for saying it. Going over ~800ft has no purpose other than dick-waving and makes no engineering sense. The only reason it makes economic sense in some cases is because the super-rich will pay handsomely for the right to wave their dicks. It's a conspicuous consumption sort of deal.
