You won't have the AD passive by level 6 from items.
The only way for that would be to buy a long sword+amplifying tome.
While the Amplifying tome works towards your revolver/gunblade, a long sword is completely useless toward any viable akali build.
I'm not sure throwing your ignite early just to allow for different runes is worth it. If that ignite could have otherwise gotten you a kill in the early laning phase (happens quite often), then it definitely is not a good idea. A early game kill for Akali against your laning opponent helps a lot towards her transition to gunblade roaming/mid game.
