I do not see anything.

This is correct to some degree; you can replace the low pressure gauge with one that is lower than the maximum working pressure (see below).

Yes, if you go over the 100 PSI mark accidentally, while the regulator itself will be fine (since it was designed to handle that delivery pressure), you will break the low pressure gauge.
