So if Romulus is destroyed in the Prime timeline, there is no longer anything preventing the Federation developing cloaking technology... I can see this maybe being a catalyst for trouble with the Klingons, which could lead to war... Although the 'All Good Things...' alternate future is not the Prime future I could see the Klingons getting jumpy with Feds running around under cloak.

As long there is a working romulan goverment (i persume that senators of other worlds in the empire would establish a new goverment) the Feds would never break that treaty (why they ever signed such a Versailles-treaty is a mistery).

It's not really a mystery. The Federation is committed to peaceful exploration of the galaxy. Cloaking Devices suggest the need for deceit or secrecy.  This is not the Federation's way.  Section 31 is a parasite.

Thinking about cloack that way is unwise.
The UFP was a peacefull society but they need to believe that not the entire galaxy feels the same way.

I'm sure they already know the galaxy can be pretty rough, but consider they have over 150 worlds on their side acting for mutual benefit. Both Empires of the Klingons and Romulans were built by conquering. I think the Federation can hold its own without the aid of a cloaking device. Besides, the Klingons are friendly with the Federation and the Romulans are coming around too. Cardassia no longer has the resources to declare war, and the Breen can't take on the three major powers. The Federation defeated the Dominion too.

I don't want you to interpret this as being complacent, but the Federation doesn't need to adopt cloaking technology for self preservation. They seem to be doing a fairly good job at spreading their message.
