@Mad-Spy Why did you choose “Force” in the implementation guidelines instead of roster? (Doesn’t roster encompass the entire list, and force is merely a subset?)
I’m also seeing what appear to be validation issues when following the guidelines with units that can be part of multiple alliances ... and do a Battleline change (without a General requirement). scratches head

In what way?
We will never be able to make units switch role after selection. BS just doesn't support that functionality.
in terms of multi-allegiance with a Battleline switch on one of them, look at Chaos Marauder Horsemen. They are Slaves To Darkness Battleline, but could potentially be in any of the God Allegiances depending on their Mark.

I chose Force because there's no need to support multi-catalogue rosters, thus validating at Roster is probably overkill.

Having looked over Azyr, I'm having serious second thoughts on the delineation between Allegiance and PBF. It would seem clear that GW have just made their wording incredibly unclear, but that they actually intended for the two to be synonymous.

that's about what I was seeing in Azyr and Warscroll Builder as well

So. Is Allegiance just a fancy name for Faction? And “Factions” are truly intended to just be keywords? (IE the official webpage builder version is just overly complex?)
How does that mesh With a “Grand Host of Nagash” Army? As an example?

That does seem to work nicely with the Allegiance:The Wraith Fleet... where it is flagged by units that have a specific keyword.
