Hello, if I may add another perspective on this issue: from the point of view 
of a routing node, it is advantageous to be as close as possible to as much 
merchants as possibile, to capture part of the flow of funds to them.

Therefore, when a new merchant appears, I actually see the possibility of some 
competition between routing nodes to fund stable channels with them. This could 
turn the incoming capacity issue perhaps into a non-issue in the steady state.
