The idea of Vulcans seceding from the UFP at the earliest excuse is not all that unlikely, considering the history of the planet and its alliances.
And if Vulcan kicked the federation to the curb, how many other members would depart with her, or soon after? It would not be hard to imagine that Vulcan was responsible for the entry of many of the federation's members. Through the diplomacy and reasoning of Vulcan ambassadors. How many would follow the Vulcans into their new alliance. After all was said and done, there simply might not be any federation left in the area between Vulcan and the RNZ.

Vulcan ... I understood that it was relatively close earth and Andor (Andoria?) which would seem to put it deep in Federation space.
Earth/Vulcan would have been at the core of the federation in it's (the federation's) early days, and the Romulans would have been near that core. But as the federation grew, the old core's distance to the Romulans (and the Klingons) would have stayed the same.

Any growth would have by necessity been away from the Romulans/Klingons. The growth would have been "asymmetrical."

Over time, the old 22nd century core of the federation would be off to one side, and not in the middle of the 24th century federation.
