Even if you removed Romulans, PvP is broken...but Romulans distorted it in all new ways.
Romulans won't get nerfed, but the other factions can be buffed.
I'd suggest that KDF and Feds need Boffs with useful space abilities for a start, followed by useful, non-warbird consoles.

it's called power creep.. a term assigned to game publishers who make all new things OP so that you *have* to buy them. Then, after a period of time when they reach a plateau of sales, they nerf those things pretty much making you wish you hadn't spent the money.
There is a "better" ship every time you turn around. For example, the JHAS used to be the best ship in game, and while it is still good, it is no longer the best in the game when you have the T'varo or the Scimitar, etc...
The nukara mine is currently OP if spec'd right, so they get you to buy that too and spend your dilithium and resources on it and then, like concentrated tachyon mines, they will also be nerfed.
Cryptic would say that they keep a close eye on their power creep, but they really don't, otherwise, these things would never be released.. Hell, they even have testers complain about them on tribble forums before the release and most of the time they don't do anything about it.
Go look on the tribble forums and see for yourself.
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"

he he he this is amusing, it used to be FED's screaming about the OP KDF now they join forces and scream about the OP Rommies lol awesome, that pesky Khitomer accord they turn it on and off like a tap !
It is funny though you gotta admit, I never thought I would here the KDF screaming OP NERF IT
I think with the Rommies being like they are its just raised the bar a little and now they need to add more content (CHA CHING) for the FED's and KDF to catch up with the superiority of the Romulans. True I play a Romulan now but was sick of my FED and don't like playing KDF so I see them as a welcome change. I run a human/romulan BOFF mix and it works well !
If the good players are making crit builds with uber cloacking cooldowns I dont see how it is a problem, they would probably beat you no matter which faction they are in (probably KDF). But it is nice to have an alternative to the KDF even if people think they are stronger than them. !
