Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Two prices are used to represent the whole price structure: baseload price and peak price. If you choose this representation, you want those two data points to be maximally separated.

In what way maximally separated, beyond price? The way I see it, if there is separation in trading, anything above is artificial. Any way I look at it, EEX's number is not average peak load, it's average weekday peak load, and doesn't represent the whole price structure. If one wants to know how high prices can get, then standard deviation could be calculated.
