Default Adeptus Mechanicus Allies Question

I have recently picked up a Skitarii codex, and I am having some trouble determining from the rules how they regard the other factions in terms of allying.

I did note that on the front cover is printed "Codex Adeptus Mechanicus", so I understand this to mean the Skitarii as considered as part of the Faction Adeptus Mechanicus. I then reference the alliance chart in the core rule book, but I do not see an entry for Adeptus Mechanicus faction.
I do see an entry for Armies of the Imperium, but it is not explicit that Adeptus Mechanicus is considered to be an Army of the Imperium.

Could someone shed some light as to where Adeptus Mechanicus falls in terms of how it regards the other factions as allies, or correct me on any misunderstanding I may have shown in this thread?

They are considered to be part of the Imperium of Man, so therefore that is where they are located cart blanche for ally purposes. Basically GW is lazy as fuck when updating the Ally Chart and made all of the Imperial factions (Space Marines of many flavor, Imperial Guard, Inquisition, Imperial Knights, Sisters of battle, Ad Mech + Friends) are all added together.

Pending Fluff arguments IG and Ad Mech could be used as Allies of Convenience with certain outside forces - such as CSM - if you talked it over with your friends.
