Don´t you move when you are flying? When your wyrm moves to the edge hexes (by flying) he can spend another movement point to go in any direction. The only restriction for flying units is not to stop in an occupied space.
For the record I completely agree with you (and most others here) that flying off the map is a perfectly valid option.
To play devil's advocate for a moment, though, I believe the counter argument is that "spending 1 MP to move off the map" is a special quest rule. You aren't normally allowed to move off the map.
Therefore when the quest rules say "move to an edge space and then spend 1 MP to move off the map" they actually mean you have to stop your movement in an edge space and then spend 1 MP to execute the special quest rule and leave the map. This would require the edge space to be unoccupied because not even flying creatures can stop in an occupied space.
Again, I agree personally that flying off the map is fine.
