Rules confusion with daemons

Hey guys, haven't posted anything in awhile, but I have a question about nurgle daemons. I'm sure I could find my answers if I really looked, but I figured I'd ask the rules masters on here instead.

My question involves daemons and choosing psychic powers. I had heard that daemons need to have at least one power from their god's selection, and then any available powers after that. I had heard from others that they can have all powers chosen from where they please. For instance, a great unclean one could choose all three powers from biomancy or all three powers from nurgle. Or is it that the GUO needs to have at least one from nurgle, and then can have 2 from biomancy? idk

Yeah pretty much as said above.
The rule was cleared up by asking questions at Warhammer Fest, though for some reason didnt make it in to the FAQ that was published a month or so later.

The ruling was...

CSM Sorcerers or Daemon Princes were forced to take the Chaos Focus, and that Chaos Focus did not count towards their minimum of 1 spell from their god. This also stopped them from having a Psychic Focus from say Biomancy of whatever as a free spell.
CSM Sorc who have no mark of course do not gain the Chaos Focus and may of course then pick all spells from 1 descipline and as such can take a Psychic Focus.

Daemons from the Daemon Codex however do not have to take any mandatory spells from their gods descipline. AND in addition to this if they choose to take their spells from a descipline from one that is not their god, they WILL still recieve their Chaos Focus for that god, AND also get their Psychic Focus for having picked all their spells to be from say Biomancy.
This also means that a unit of Horrors who picked Malefic, would get a roll on that school and also the primus (summoning) and also get the Tzeentch Primus of Flickering Fire (so 3 spells).

Yeah, though till it hits an FAQ I guess people will argue over it. Because the only proof I have of the convo is a notebook and my memory of speaking with them.
I probably should have got it signed by them so I could throw it up as a picky of on the internets, so I could say "XXXX says this!".
