The above approach is absolutely no different then how the KDF were portrayed throughout the various TNG era series: the Klingons were allies of the Federation, and the two groups could team-up to do various things together - and even exchange gear - but they were still very-much their own societies.
Not quite. For example...there has never been an instance in this game where a Klingon vessel with Federation Tags engages in warfare against the Empire on the side of the Federation.

However....that is EXACTLY what is going to happen with the Romulans. In fact...from a story perspective, the Romulan society will be in a perpetual state of Civil War, with Romulan vessels firing on each other, and working for one side or another.
