    This is really clever from a marketshare standpoint, the smallsat launch industry is burgeoning, and although SpaceX don't specialize in small payloads, if they let the smallsat market grow unhinged, at least one company that serves smallsat is going to decide to do a bigger rocket which could compete with F9 eventually, so this lowers the potential number of competitors for them. I see it not as a big revenue generator but as an insurance policy guaranteeing them less competitors in the larger satellite market.
