Mergers aren't as easy as you might think, ODDR merged two times in the past.
First round with rock, but most of rock didn't feel at home with us, and started rock up again a round later.

second time we merged with enigma, which has been an excellent fit.
but that took several rounds as well.

Giving up or sharing power never really is the issue with a merger, People need to feel to be part of a core, and you don't get that by doing a merge.
A merge would only be a quick fix for those alliances, to get people to feel like they are part of something takes multiple rounds.
