Sure a blood angels model can't be used in a dark angels army, but all those different primaris can be used in all of them.
But that's the interesting thing about all of this. With the exception of Primaris, which are something unique and totally unprecedented, Space Marine releases since around 6th Editon have been either (a) highly specialized and locked to certain chapters (see Black Knights, Baal Predators, Wulfen, etc.) or (b) really niche (Hunters, Stalkers, Centurions). The only thing that really comes to mind would be the Horus Heresy-themed Dreadnought and Terminators that showed up a while back.
Thinking back about the last couple of years... haven't we gotten an unbelievable amount of new models? Stormsurge, Ghostkeel, Riptide, Tidewall, Commanders, Coldstars, Breachers, Support Turrets... not to mention updated sculpts for Fire Warriors, Pathfinders, Shield Drones, and Marker Drones. I mean, that's actually a ton of stuff!
Meanwhile, Space Marine players are largely stuck with the same Rhinos, Land Raiders, Terminators, etc.
Imperium as a whole is swimming in new releases for AdMech, Guard, Custodes, Scions, etc., but actual Space Marines seem to be a little behind actually.
