Is there any general consensus on VNO (top of the green arc) for the Highlander? I don't see it in the Just Operators Manual or on the website.

I have thought about this, Va is more relevant in my opinion. Also, it is commonly not on experimental aircraft a/s indicators as it requires a lot of testing and math based on a production quality that I feel is not guaranteed.

I may be making a big assumption here, but I doubt it is an issue due to the drag and type of flying we normally would do with a highlander, where Va is possibly an issue. Somebody smarter than me needs to build a V-G diagram for highlanders, but that probably requires testing to ultimate (destructive) you first!
