I'd argue against it, but... yeah... well...

Eh, it only affects the Heldrake since FMCs have Move Through Cover and therefore automatically ignore Dangerous Terrain, so I don't think it's a huge issue (it's unlikely to do much at the best of times, and on a Heldrake with it's 5++, even less so).
Zooming Flyers and Swooping Monstrous Creatures must also take a Dangerous Terrain test if they move within 18" of an Obelisk, even though they do not normally take dangerous terrain tests.

Not sure how that rule would effect it, then.

on the other hand, dropping this thing into the enemy lines like the holy hand grenade sounds fun.

I'd say that RAW, MCs/FMCs do take Dangerous Terrain, they just automatically pass it. RAI, I think it should affect them since why else would it have the rule there?

Gotta love GW rule writing.

So if I drop it into the enemy, no worries. If it stays too close to me, watch my fliers. Assuming I run any. I'm currently considering running a half CSM (thousand sons), half Necron army, using some of the Decurion building block formations. might not fight in a heldrake.
