Default Question about we stand alone drawback

Ok I was looking at this drawback, and was wondering what allies marines could take in the first place. My first thought was Daemon Hunters, but it never explained any rules, or said which armies they could take allies from.
So I was wondering if asnyone knew exactly what the SMs can take for allies.

Since when can Space Marines take Kroot as allies?

Yeah I know Kroot are mercenaries, but doesn't the Imperium feel compelled to destroy any xenos they come into contact with?

I don't think I've ever seen a rule saying that the imperium couldn't take them... were's a Tua player when you need one...

In the Kroot Merc codex it lists the armies that can't take them as allies and Space Marines are on there.

It isn't really a drawback, if you ask me. After all, how many Space Marine armies have you ever seen that take allies? :

Yeah, it's one of those 'free' drawbacks abused by so many players. >
