You really think the 3 million people who stuck with the series to the end were casual viewers?

Two or three common races with a couple random crazy makeup aliens thrown in here and there wouldn't have been more complicated than the things the audience were expected to remember about the Gem'Hadar or about Bajoran politics. And viewers are already expected to remember a few dozen AQ races.
DS9 pretty much dumped the Bajoran politics during the later parts of the show and went for the good vs evil thing, which was a good idea.

Also it's spelled Jem'Hadar NOT Gem'Hadar! Sorry, but your misspelling been bugging me.

What I would have done, instead of shortening the Dominion arc, had the Dominion be made up of more diverse races like originally planned.

Make it a real 'Totalitarian Federation'. Have more races than just the Gem'Hadar comprise the military.
Having other species in the Dominion military doesn't make sense. The Founders don't trust any solids which is why they created their own (Vorta and Jem'Hadar).

We should have seen how the various Dominion members interacted. Even though the writers intended it to be an anti-Federation, they didn't really highlight this well.
