No, I think the problem here is that by the terms of the initial post, the Necromorphs DO count, and are by far and away the more dangerous. To the point where it feels unfair.
But they are Space Zombies, and that means they get an invite.
The flood I'm not quite so sure on, but they do require dead hosts so they are arguably more zombie than the Rage type, or other new-style not-dead zombies. (The flood would be much more dangerous than most others too, but the no-host-poaching rule largely cuts off their chances of cheap wins and increased numbers).
