Defaulting to 1 allows for a simple server that never has to handle multiple concurrent streams, one that can be implemented with much fewer lines of code, but is still compliant. Great for serving software updates, large files, CRLs, etc. Not so great for web pages.

Other servers will quickly raise the limit via a SETTINGS frame.
