I'd think there a lot more than we'd know about. Remember Garak and Kira went to an orphanage on Bajor that one time? I'm sure there were a fair few there, and if that was one such orphanage, there would be many others. That's only the hybrids on Bajor too.

Forgetting about the Breen for the moment; as far as I'm concerned, they parted ways with the Dominion and went back to their own space. The Dominion aren't allied with the True Way; it's rouge Jem Hadar (and likely Vorta) that are.

From my understanding of the Son'a, they were the Baku, at least, they were a group of Baku. Some of them didn't like living without technology so were eventually banished. They became the Son'a (likely using old Baku tech for their ships and such). They then went on the pillage worlds for slave labor etc (Tarlac & Ellora).

As with both of you, I'm not sure just how many Son'a there are. It's hard to believe their fleet consisted of only three ships (though I believe one didn't survive Insurrection; so now they're a fleet of two?)

It's more likely there are other Son'a out there, maybe the Son'a are descendants of the Baku and those settled on that planet are refugees of sorts. They had to come from somewhere themselves, maybe it was a Son'a Empire of sorts? None of this was properly fleshed out with Insurrection, so it's anyone's guess really.
