I came to this same realization about a year ago and since then I have tried to leave a big space in front of me so that people can merge easily; however I regualrly encounter one signficant problem, which is this: The angry guybehind me who has no concept of why I'm leaving the gap in front of me and who is pounding on his horn and getting closer and closer to deliberatly rear ending me. This is something that happens about about 30% of the time and I must confess that it's stopped me driving in a manner that eases traffic. As much as I'd like to help everyone out I'm just not prepared to get shot for it :(
