Three minutes of being detected and unable able to use their favour they paid 200-1600 renown for is one hell of a cheap trick. Not too mention negating the void blending they may have paid for. Recon Beacons are skills and so are very very cheap (25pts on a light cruiser) compared to the 200-1600pt favours they wipe out.
Okay so the widowmaker can detect to 10k but at least you can try to counter it. There is no counter for the 25pt recon beacon.
You gotta know not every race has the widowmaker though. Recon Beacons arent even that powerful and have a rediculous cool down and i have never seen a fleet bring more than 2 beacons. great they ID two of your ships if they are lucky. You still got 1 or 2 more ships that can still stealth and deal crazy damage. Eldar have a shit ton of jamming abilities and if you play them right i wont even be able to attach a recon beacon because i cant see you.
