Default Allies of Convenience Objectives?

Alright, now as far as I remember the BRB stated that allies of convenience are treated as enemy units, correct?
According to the FAQ, they are treated as friendly units for the purpose of objectives...

Quote:
Note
that Allies of Convenience units are treated as ‘friendly units’
forthe purpose of controlling and denying Objectives, and
forthe purpose of pile-in moves in Close Combat. This
means that, for example…etc
Now, I didn't realise this. So this completely changes my perspective on allied orky hordes...

Just thought I'd make a post in-case I was the only one who had noticed this...

PEACE

That is correct, allies of convenience troops are scoring; I believe that even desperate allies can still score objectives.

Excellent.
Was it in the original BRB?
Or was it just FAQ'd?

In the original text. Rather, there was nothing saying that allied troops were no longer scoring right from the beginning.

Hmm.
I'd argue that the wording implied that, being enemy units meant no objective cappin'
But eh. Thats in the past, and it completely changes my ideas of army building...
