I would also like to point out that the community commented very clearly about what they wanted regarding playable Romulans (and that was a full faction with its own story and agenda) and that Dan Stahl confirmed that he had understood that.

However, I think that New Romulus is actually a Romulan faction that we could realistically get as a playable faction, the core from which a new, united RSE will grow. First they build their Tau Dewa sector, and then they defeat the other factions and incorporate everything into their new empire.

Think about it: They are friends* enough with the Federation and the Klingons to cooperate in Task Force Omega and to virtually take over all the missions that are currently two-faction (perhaps with the exception of the Devidians) for the Romulan faction. That is good, because it means any future faction-shared content could be used for them, too.

*Of course, the whole talk about "friendship" and cooperation is at least partially the typical Romulan scheme.
