A number of the guiding companies are actually owned and run by sherpas.

The death rate has dropped over the last 10-15 years due to better organization from the guiding companies.

The congestion issue arises because of the limited days that you can actually summit. Will they cap numbers , unlikely to be a straight cap, but there is discussion around people wanting to climb to have previous high altitude climbing experience before being allowed to climb the big peaks.
