Default why the temp requirement for dry yeast rehydration

what is the reason for rehydrating dry yeast at high temps? would there be a problem rehydrating at lower temps?

Lower temperatures mean slower rehydration and fewer cells surviving the process. The yeast are basically going from dead to alive and the timing of the process is critical.

so if that is the case, what would the difference in pitch rate of viable yeast be when pitching yeast re hydrated at cooler temps or sprinkling dry yeast directly on wort?
