Warhammer 40k, Primaris Marines theory!

Ok, so by now we have seen this:

So how about this for a theory?
The new marines do a whole Order 66 idea, they are susceptible to the taint of chaos and so need to be removed. The fact that current marines keep defecting to chaos (the badab wars being used as a recent devastating example) show that the current geneseed is too flawed. So they are then hunted down but some survive, still loyal to the emperor but are pushed back into a rebellion cell, unable to reinforce or rearm and pushed back to home planets. This introduces a new faction with a mix of PDF to augment the shattered chapters.

Just an idea :)
