It's kind of like the way Glorantha has gods affiliated with different Runes, who get along more or less, and sometimes have old quarrels, we also see that all of the various Rune cults hate Chaos. That may be officially relativistic but it looks a lot like inherent evil, in both cases.

And the Nephandi kind of come across to me as comic book villains. I don't really see them as the adversaries I want to make a campaign interesting.
Just remember - it's all heavily and wilfully biased except for the mechanics. Just tell your players the book's fluff was written by an ex-nephandi... with an axe to grind, and may not be accurate.
That is the intended way to use it. It's all POV, not setting truth.
