Excellent question! I am just speculating here, but maybe the assumption is that most people stay for less than 90 days, but the visitor MIGHT leave Peru and wish to return to Peru much later in the year, thus, if they give them the full 183 days in one shot, the tourist would not be able to enter again.
But on the other hand, they can give you 90 days, and if you need to extend, you can do so online without leaving the country.
It actually makes sense if you stop and think about it.
Conversely, if you can make a reasoned, intelligible argument as to why you need the full 183 days in one shot, they ought to understand.
