Request for information on client_body_in_single_buffer config option

I am curious to know as to why the nginx.conf config
variable: client_body_in_single_buffer is turned off by default?

Is there any performance degradation when its turned on?
In my understanding when this is turned on, it should help improve the
performance by reading the entire body in a single memcopy operation. Isn't

Thanks & Regards,
