Actually, speaking to immersion it would bother me to get to know a person playing one race for months then have a species change. If my experience in MMO's is any indication, for every well thought out Race Change there would be a hundred players doing something weird like changing their Vulcan into a Caitain, for example.
As to a Trill becoming a Joined Trill, that is canonically justifiable as that particular race is only being modified not supplanted. Also I could support a Trill becoming a Joined Trill, or any race becoming a Liberated Borg. But like many good ideas, a Race Change Token could be a slippery slope in removing one of the few constants in an MMO already allowing perhaps too much customization from a canonical perspective.
