Default Monolith Deepstrike

With the new Tyranid FAQ we now have precedent for the Monolith being able to deepstrike wherever we like:

"Q: Can a Mawloc choose to Deep Strike onto a point
occupied by an enemy model on purpose in order to
use the Terror from the Deep special rule?
A: Yes."

Do you guys agree on extending this ruling to our lovely brick?

Such a rule already is in place Zeeblee. A monolith which lands where enemy troops are forces those troops out of the way. Do remember the precise wording though, if you land on FRIENDLY models, for whatever stupid reason they DON'T get out of the way, and you mishap.
Alright Blood Angels, who wants to play pin the Tau on the carnifex!

I know the rule prevents mishap, but I remember there being a debate as to whether or not you could plop the monolith down on enemies intentionally. Some argued that you had to place it on a safe spot first, while others argued you could place it wherever you like.

This new FAQ presents precedent that allows for deepstrikes to be declared in a normally unsafe position, which resolves the argument over monolith placement. Unless anyone disagrees?

Maybe I'm just remembering this debate from another forum, but I felt like sharing what the Tyranid FAQ could mean for us if the debate was still going.

Just realize, rules for one army do not bleed into rule for another army....

But the Monolith already has a similar rule within its codex.
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people asking questions.
