As there are a lot of benches without a backrest, I would not introduce 
a default value here, as there's always a "need" for backrest=*. Your 
proposed default would reduce backrest=left|right|middle|none to 
backrest=yes for the default value, but you could not rely on that.

There's no benefit as we don't need less tags, and it's less valuable as 
backrest=yes without that "default" would work as a fallback (there's a 
backrest, but I don't know, on which side).

That's the difference to the retaining walls: a retaining wall is 
retaining something from moving to the other side - that's what defines 
it as a RETAINING wall.
