Since Warwick Davies didn't activate the bomb as soon as the Cybermen showed up, doesn't that make all the deaths his fault?
Either activating it right away would have left people behind (if they only transmat people around the emperor), or it would have brought partially-converted people onto the flagship. Either one would have resulted in deaths as well (quite possibly more of them).

This may be weak justification after-the-fact, but it seems like the least-bad outcome given the circumstances.
