While there is no stated evidence that I am aware of, I believe the uniforms in the STO universe have completely eliminated the command color distinction. In this timeline, red represents security and tactical, not command.
To your question about RP, I think it makes more sense this way. In a time of war or emergency, it's better to designate uniforms based on skills and specialty so leaders or people not familiar with your face can designate assignments to you accurately.
