This is a myth. There is no cap. There is only the assumption that there is probably no good reason to build anything above 2000ft that will unecessarily intrude into the airspace. Thus the FAA and FCC have a policy of not issuing permits to build above 2000' unless the applicant presents a good arguement as to why they should be allowed to build so high. There is no cap or law preventing it.
In other words the only thing that happens at 2000' is that the developer now has the burden of proof to show that there is a need for a 2000' structure that outweighs the disadvantage of the intrusion on the airspace.
