Sure, upstream and downstream defaults are not required to be the
same. And, for example, we do not use keepalive with upstream
servers by default - at all, unless explicitly configured.
Nevertheless, in many cases it is a good idea to keep them the
same to avoid needless user confusion.
Also, as already said, it is believed that 100 is a good enough
number for most setups.
