I support the Romulans being a playable faction for either side, and as someone has already stated, the Romulans are allies with Duras, so that is feasible, but if it sill bothers you klinks, take the hirogen as playable characters instead. Their thirst for violence would make sense in going to your side anyway.
The reason the Duras family fell out of power was precisely because of their alliance with the Romulans though. It soured all Klingons against them. Even in the STO timeline it suggests that J'mpok is weary of the Duras family. In fact, in game Klingons are noted to say exactly this.
