The numbered warp factors have always functioned as a way of conveying relative urgency and nothing more. They could as easily have been Warp Factor No Hurry, Warp Factor A Little Faster than That, Warp Factor OK We're Moving Now, Warp Factor Pretty Fast and Warp Factor We Need to Be There Yesterday.
I recall a TNG episode that starts with the Enterprise en route to a medical crisis, gets interrupted so that the real plot begins, solve the plot, and then resume course to the urgent medical crisis -- at Warp 2. It was the Warp Speed version of the cast pausing while sharing a laugh for the credits.

Don't forget Warp Factor The Engines Can't Take It Anymore.
I knew I was missing something.
Isn't there also a Warp Factor But That's Impossible?
From The Changeling:

ENGINEER: Warp 10, Mister Scott.
SCOTT: Impossible. It can't go that fast.
ENGINEER: It just won't stop, Mister Scott. Warp eleven!

Why not give up and just say, "Light Speed", "Ridiculous Speed", and "Ludicrous Speed"?

Darth Helmet went to Plaid. Voyager went to Amphibians.

Hey, some Amphibians can change colors, too. Imagine the speed of a plaid amphibian!

Faster or slower than an unladen swallow?

Ludicrously, amphibiously faster, naturally.
