I'm trying to re-verify this for my own info as much as anything else.
In the witchhunters Codex, it references that allied Space Marine units are purchased from Codex: Space Marines. This reference is still valid towards the 5th Edition Codex correct?

as far as I can tell, it's still called Codex: Space Marines
that means you can still use the units listed in the WH codex. If the names aren't the same, you can't use them. For Space Marines, I'm not sure much really changed.
You can't use Sisters of Battle in the force if you induct SM's though.
check out Farmpunk's blog:
the Back 40k
Yep. and it hold up in a tournament because none of the names of the units changed from 4th to 5th edition of the codex.

Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
If you're going to go that route, you almost always come up with a better army by playing Space Marines and allying in Witch Hunters. The only reason to do it as WH would be if you wanted like some Penitent Engines or something.
hmm, when we're on the subject. Is the stormtroopers from the new IG dex legal to use? I want those ap3 hellguns.
The new IG Stormies aren't legal to take, they're not on the list of Inducted Guard units you can take (p26 of the WH Codex).
Marines are still legal to take, and what's more you can take a squad of Scouts with Telion or stick Brother Chronus in one of your Smurf tanks, because they're upgrade characters for the unit. You can't take Sisters and Allied Smurfs in the same WH list though, so if you're doing it I'd suggest making the Smurfs your base list and using your WH as allies unless you want to take more than 1 Sisters Heroine or something.
ah, too bad. Just thought of it since we got Stormtroopers in our dex.
yes they are, but you got to admit ap3 hellguns would be nice.
Well well, rules are rules.
