I don't think taking Dalm late was such a problem: Serbia and Hungary were just easier to take, and I didn't want to waste moves on not taking Dalm. The problem was rather that I advanced it late, because I spent several turns moving my armies from Dalm to Austria, in hopes of getting to Rhineland. With LNO in Venetia, it was too risky to advance Dalm. In hindsight, I had better advanced Dalm, and only then try to get to Rhineland.
Of course I also buy dev and adv, just not as much as LNO. I don't want to delay Asia's becoming supportive because of reaping money from it. Basically, I only used Crete for money, and the rest only after advancing (with the exception of winter urgencies).
