It's not all that different from the infamous "Death of Superman"; what started as a powerful action, the death of an incredibly iconic character, turned into a farce when they just resurrected him four issues later. That event it credited as killing death in comics. Frankly, I find that idea unappealing.
Maybe, but just because the Iconians abducted Romulus doesn't mean they're going to give it back. Perhaps the Romulan/Iconian alliance goes sour and they go against the Iconians and try to get their homeworld back. That could justify a romulan faction.
