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.
