My monitor/projector can handle higher refresh frequencies than what you recommend - isn’t it better to have higher refresh rates?

The refresh rates recommended are the highest rates that the video displays can handle without re-sampling the incoming video stream and dropping frames. Besides the obvious problem of dropped frames, the overall latency will actually increase. See Section 9.8 - "Understanding Video Display Latencies" in the Dexterit-E User Guide  for more details.
