Just as a point of interest. Could Blood Angels feasibly field characters from other chapters  (Shrike, Lysander etc)?

The Marines codex says any marine chapter can field any character from another chapter (representing the fact that chapters will fight alongside each other). However reading through the current Blood Angels codex (the White dwarf update version - http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m1180159_Blood_Angels_Codex_and_FAQ_2007-08_5th_Edition.pdf ) it says that Blood Angels have an ancient aversion to other chapters, but does not explicitly say that they cannot employ the services of one of the characters from another chapter.
Yes, granted the marines codex does also say that you can take the stats and characteristics of, for instance, Calgar give him a new paint job and name (kinda warhammer witness protection) and use him like that.

Thoughts any one?

yup, looking forward to that, I must admit. The old update "codex" is Ok but doesn't balance very well in the current climate.

It was more a question of curiosity, which takes priority.. Space Marines codex or a small mention of Chapter ethos??

Thats the way i see it. Theres nothing to date that says explicitly that you CANNOT, and feels more like its severely frowned upon (courtesy of BA codex)

agreed the WD update in my eyes was just like over priced marines painted red instead of the glorious blood angels this codex will hopefully make
