Disclaimer: I have not read anything about how Romulan Doffs are supposed to work.
In the long run, I think the Romulans need their own distinct Doff system. Currently, if you go Rom/KDF, you basically get the KDF system - Marauding, etc. As far as I can tell, there are no differences.
Stopping to read the missions available makes you realize how wrong most of them are for a Romulan character. (And I won't even quibble over Marauding.) Defend the honor of a sibling? Wut?
Additionally, you are now plugged into the KDF Doff store, you talk to Stass, etc. Seems like you should be doing all that at New Romulus exclusively.
Probably not a change that will happen before May, but I'm just tossing it out there.

The statements that I have read/heard seem to indicate that 90% of DOffing will be through the ally. There may be a unique chain or two and a handful of DOffs, but nothing extensive. They "might" extend the system down the road, so hold your breath...
I really enjoy what parts of the DOff system they have finished. I am also a huge Romulan fan. Sounds like this may be the deciding factor for if I go Fed/KDF. Fed it is. At least their peacenik missions won't seem totally wrong.
This is another example where Romulans really are just a sub-race within the Fed/KDF.
