Default Mash Temps/Times

You're right in the heart of the envelope. Mashing lower will give you less body and more fermentables, mashing higher will give you fuller body with more residual sugars.

JP's howtobrew, ch. 14 is a good read. This section talks about the sacc rest.

Your figures are good.

You can go down to 45 minutes or increase if you need to.

Mashing high will increase non fermentables and give a maltier fuller bodied brew.
Mashing low will increase fermentables and give a dry lighter brew.

Keep in mind that modern malts don't need the multistage rests that older malts needed.
Have a beer on me.
