I am going with this. People tend to be locked into the DS9 Dominion and say "can't be in the game, they are bad guys" but really the "Bad Guy" label was more for the sake of the series, where they were a antagonist.
Given that Odo, who is more friendly toward the Federation. As well as the 2800 series, which had them cooperate with the Alpha powers. It isn't really a stretch to have a Dominion that is non-antagonistic, and therefore would work as a Playable Faction.
Though I would still like the Cardassians as a seperate faction from the Dominion. Probably have the So'na seperate as well. Since I think the Dominion pretty much retreated from the Alpha Quadrant at the end of the Dominion War (that and admittedly I am not a fan of the So'na).
