You can unify everything in Ati Guru Yoga. Even the person who taught you to tie your shoes.
In Bon is the Lineage kept clean / clear, by not adding everything inside the Lineage.
This because Bonpos are happy with all their Dzogchen Masters who are all unified in one Buddha but are also individual honoured in the form of Guru Yoga.
Here it is realy not nescessary to add others to the Lineage, would mean for a Bonpo that something is missing in the Lineage...........
Like Dronma told for some is there no need to do so (here is meant that Dronma does not want to add in her Lineage her previous convictions, but for some they need that certain special freedom.
Well in Bon we don't know those kinds of freedom(s) and Bon does not practice for that, not a kind of incomplete Guru Yoga.
So for Bonpos like me does this all sound like new age Dzogchen, cannot help it
