Default I haven't posted a stupid ? in a while

So here it is:

Why is a lot of boost at low RPM bad?

I can see if you are surging the compressor that high boost a low RPM is bad. Not that it is possible but why is running say 20psi at 2000rpm or lowwer bad.
I know you will run into torque limits on the rods. Other than those two things(surge and torque limits) what is so wrong in getting high boost as low in the rpm range as possible.

What caused me to ask is that a subie guru just said that it was bad. I thought that one of the greatest chalenges with a turbo is to get boost as low as you can. I could just be very confused.
