I'd have my hazard lights on. People will see you and be able to maneuver around you sooner.
If you can get over a lane without impeding traffic, let the mergee come in, then get back in the "slow" lane once they take off - that would be best. You see the truckers do this all the time as a common courtesy. If you can't safely go over to the center or passing lane, then I'd would maintain speed and let them merge before or after you. Not your fault they can't drive. Also, I'd have my hazards off during these maneuvers and use turn signals profusely.
