Agreed. Everyone keeps projecting their own hopes or fears onto it, when it really doesn't mean anything at all. Everyone sees themselves or their allies or their enemies as special, but the skies don't actually care. It's a good way of highlighting how pointless the game of thrones is, in the grand scheme of things.
I also agree with this. I think it's both. I thought it was a great illustration of one of the themes of the series-namely, everyone is the main character in their own life, everyone sees themselves as the hero of the story. At the same time, I thought it truly was for Dany & the dragons, and this fact didn't take away from the former idea, but rather added to it. Everyone thinks it's a sign of victory for their chosen king, when really it's a sign of something so much bigger.
