As for Romulan expansionism, the whole point behind their Enterprise storyline was that Earth and her allies were a threat to their expanding empire. If their empire was that big, then there would have to be a whole lot of Romulans off planet in order to keep their territory under their control.
In the recent Romulan War novels, it was established that the interstellar civilization of the 22nd century Romulans was not only substantially older than the humans' but larger in the bargain. The only reason Earth lasted so long on its own was that the Haakonans were distracting the Romulans on the other side of their empire.
