Treating enemies as honorable foes is one of the other alternatives, so probably not (the page-quote is from a Necron Lord's ultimatum to a Hive World, saying they are trespassing on his land and he will honorably give them one month to evacuate)...I think it's so much of a minority because it requires an unusual set of circumstances - the Necron Lord in question must wake up A) sufficiently intact and sane, B) in command of insufficient troops to pursue a military option, and C) be of the genuine disposition to want to pursue a non-military option. C) is the hardest to achieve, because pacifist Necrons didn't last very long in the War of Heaven. There's also the 'introverted/isolationist' flavor who kill anyone that visits them, but otherwise ignores everyone else while they focus on internal power struggles and rebuilding for centuries.
