17:3 using Why use the fire pans to cover the copper altar and not the gold one?

In parshas korach, 17:3, Elazar is commanded to take the fire pans of Korach and his followers and hammer them into "pachim" for the mizbeach.

According to Rashi, the command was to turn them into coverings for the copper altar in order to remind Israel not to attempt a repeat performance of bringing the incense inappropriately.

The outer copper altar was not used for incense, but for the animal and flour based offerings. So why put the reminder there rather than by the inner gold altar where the incense is ACTUALLY brought (and, presumably, where the warning would be needed)?
