Default Primaris Psyker can't use Divination

Hi guys, I'm new to the whole Warhammer thing, I was reading the recent Imperial Guard Codex FAQ, and noticed the Primaris Psyker cannot use any Divination powers. Does anyone have any idea why?

Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

It's probably a balance thing, and not a fluff issue.

Giving imperial guard the ability to reroll hits on all of their artillery, blobs of 50 men, and/or heavy tanks can be a pretty potent combination.

Yes, I realize that you can just ally with SM or wolves to get divination, but that's why some people think using allies is cheesy

Dear Lord the IG has tons of Dakka

This. That and human (read: non Astartes) psykers have never really been that powerful in the fluff anyway.
