In my opinion, having dominion specific items, or at least item names/pictures, even if the change is small, is important, because it allows people to talk and think about items that are different, even only subtly different clearly. Having two items occupy one namespace will cause confusion in players who don't read the tooltips regularly.
Also, as an idea for Sanguine Blade, could it charge a stack on autoattack or spellcast (like Ginsoo's Rageblade does)? This would make it a more sane and attractive item to champions who mix their abilities in with their autoattacks, or rely on heavy ability damage for burst.
