While that is interesting, and I'll surely check it out, I think this list 
should get a good idea of what the limitations are.

Where does it NOT make sense to use LN, where would it be better to put the 
transaction directly on the blockchain?

This is what I'd like to know.

Gavins usecase is useful, I'm also wondering about remittances and allowing 
international payments and global economy (company in Nairobi buys stock from 
company in Spain).
