Easy now. Not everyone can be as informed as you.
I work with a local computer store, which currently has its Internet
presence through a dedicated modem. Your download is their upload, so
there's a concrete example of more upload than download.
On a different angle, what about the FCC rules which essentially limit 56k
modems to 51 or 53k? I know practically nothing about it, except that I
read it somewhere in Network World, I believe. Back when I was a student
and took a class on Communication and Information Systems, we derived that
the theoretical maximum bandwidth of a phone line was really about 34kbps,
so it doesn't surprise me that there are all of these restrictions on 56k
