I can understand why the rev limiter is set lower in neutral. Revving your engine under no load conditions is bad for the engine. They set it lower to prevent damage. Car engines were designed to be revved under load( in gear, driving). When it is freewheeling( in neutral\park) the engine can speed up too quickly, because it does not have the mass to balance and push against, causing it to vibrate violently and at the extreme break.
I would not recommend revving it up to 6000 in neutral very often.
