What are the incentives for running a Lotus node to participate in the blockchain part of Filecoin?

What are the incentives for running a Lotus node to participate in the blockchain part of Filecoin only? (I.e. not providing any storage capacity.) Do such nodes add any value to the network?
The incentives are block rewarders. Even if not making deals, you’re securing the network. The more individual parties we have the more likely the network is secure. They are at least useful for the ledger. For the most part, their value was in securing the network and read from the ledger.
