The Wastes of Krieg

While it’s well known how the Imperium feels about any kind of mutation, I have to ask what do other races think of them? I’m sure many like the Tyranid or Ork don’t differentiate between normal or mutated, but what of others? Do the Tau tolerate mutated humans or do they wipe them out? What about the Eldar?

The eldar would definitely kill them, given that mutants are pretty much exclusively chaos corruption now (RT era, mutants were from nuclear, biological and chemical exposure).

Dark eldar, of course, might cage them if they're interesting or dangerous specimens, for experiments and arena matches.

Tau...? I don't know if its ever come up. They'd probably treat it as a scientific or medical problem to be solved, provided the mutants weren't hostile.
Remove the worst of the mutated tissue and replace with grafts and/or implants. For problematic mutants, the greater good would be the gun.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Tyranids don't have a concept of self so if the Hive Mind identified a mutated strain in the gene-pool it would probably have it exterminated then dissolved.
Ork mutations have already been seen during the War of the Beast when the Beast variants emerged in the population. Heightened psychic abilities and being taller, faster, stronger and smarter than the average Ork were hallmarks of this mutation.
Craftworlders would just kill a mutant. Mutation is either Chaos or Xenos based and a big no-no.
Druhkari wouldn't be OK with widespread mutation but the odd mutant can always been turned into a Grotesque.
Initially the T'au had a scientific curiosity about certain mutants but that led to an entire research station having a Genestealer uprising and it had to be purged.
