The only exception to this would be the phase - cloak. First of all we do not know if Starfleet would ever be able to stabilize the darn thing in the first place. Second, even if they were able to manufacture, mass produce, and mass install the cloak on all Starfleet vessels, it would still lead to the Romulans entering the war - but as the Federation's enemy. No phase cloak would be able to overcome that strategic disadvantage.
I think the Phase-cloak would've broken the Dominion's back regardless of who they were allied with. Ships can pass undetected anywhere and through solid objects. If you could miniaturize it, you could plant destructive devices within the core of Dominion worlds without them even noticing...
