That was part of the reason that F'lar wanted Dragonrider Land in Southern. It would allow the Dragonriders to have their own source of foodstuffs etc, thus taking the pressure off the Holds to Tithe now that they had eliminated the threat of Thread.

Undoubtedly, the Dragonriders will be able to provide services to Holds that they themselves are not capable of, and with the end of the need for large numbers of Dragons to fight Thread, I can see their numbers being gradually reduced as time goes on, further reducing the amount of resources required to maintain a Weyr at Full Fall Strength.
