Becoming a liaison with a faction would be sort of a promotion, based on your ever-so-valuable support for them thus far. It would make it feel like a fairly natural step for your character; just another chapter in his or her personal story.
That's a very creative idea, but then you either have to choose between reputation choices that you want or choices that are likely to put you in the faction you want to be in. Don't misunderstand me, I think the idea has merit. But since I'm forced to ally with one of the pre existing factions, it's better that I can get the rep choices I want to buff my toon and ally with the faction my fleet belongs to.
