I'm a big fan of developments and in my most recent games we've played with all developments available. Now with Shadow of the Rift out, can anyone see an issue with playing with all developments (from all expansions)?

Some races will benefit much more than others when more developments are around. Hydran and Eridani for example.

As long as the players know about it before choosing their race, I can't see it being much of an issue. The game's meta should balance things out ("You picked Octantis knowing that all developments are out? Then both us neighbours are picking military races and coming for you!", etc)

You are partly right, but meta generally cannot even out uneven player powers perfectly. See the statistics for the victory frequencies for tournament Diplomacy for example.
