Even if the Imperium wanted one of the daemon primarchs to come back, they can't leave the warp since they no longer have physical bodies. It's a one-way trip to eternal servitude. I also don't see...

The real point is they're already quite late with the...

That's what daemons are telling Horus to win his allegiance. It may be true, but daemons are unreliable truth tellers.

Seems unlikely. Chaos had plenty of opportunities before the Imperium controlled Cadia to launch attacks, yet did not. The Imperium didn't even know about Cadia until centuries after Lorgar purged it.
