"If the airframe was still within the envelope ejection would not be necessary."

Actually this statement is somewhat untrue.

The airframe may still be within the flight envelope but other problems may cause ejection to be essential. For example mechanical/structural failure, collision or loss of control. None of the these examples are covered by the envelope, which simply covers the cleared flight parameters (altitude, attitude, speed, etc.), but are considered as potential causes causes for ejection within a cause/effect analysis (often referred to as the FMEA - Failure Mode Effect Analysis).
