You can still use your portals by allying your former empire, assuming there's no restrictions in place (I'm not aware of any, I think there's only the limit on pledging after a defection). You don't need your other facilities for war and the loss of one player's contribution to empire stats is only temporary.
You can use your allies' portals, but you still require a portal mage in your own empire to do it.
True, but as they're also classed in High Sorcery to use Siege Ritual in hit and respawn tactics, it's not hard for them to pick up Portal Mage/Master as well. You're not going to see anyone using catapults in guerilla warfare, they require a massive amount of preparation and resources to use while Siege Ritual is 'free'.
