Where does this train of thought where minorities should be rewarded for being minorities come from?

I think we all paid for the game here, why should I be put at a disadvantage because the faction I chose was more popular. Putting said advantages and disadvantages like what the OP is suggesting further imbalances the game on a grander scale by pushing players into a participial direction.

Most people will follow the path of least resistance and by adding in artificial imbalances so that more people choose a particular faction is terrible design.

Imbalance in a semi balanced game to create population balance is bad.

Faction caps would make more sense but prevent friends from playing together potentially. A third faction, while a pipe dream, makes the most sense given the game world and possible implementation.
