Depends on how complicit you think Elia and Dorne were in Rhaegar's plans.

If they get to Dorne safely I suppose Doran would not send Aerys those 10,000 spears. Doran only sent those spears for the last battle of the rebellion, the one at the Trident.  Before that he stayed out of the war and only sent those men when Aerys let him know he was holding Elia and her kids.

It would be interesting to see how Aerys and Rhaegar would have proceeded without those 10,000 spears they needed badly.

We have no idea how Elia felt about Rhaegar absconding with Lyanna so it is pretty impossible to judge here.  Her safest bet was probably to go to Sunspear but I cannot fault her for staying within the walls of King's Landing.  Elia and her children's safety needed to be the priority for Doran - if they were in Dorne then Dorne should have sat out the rebellion, but with them in King's Landing Dorne needed to support the Targaryens.

Depends on how negotiations with Jon Arryn & co go. They wouldn't have cared for Aerys, but they also wouldn't want to destroy the legitimacy of Targ rule because of Elia's children.

Elia sucessfully fled to Dorne with her children after Rhaegar eloped with Lyanna? 

Well, more than likely Elia went to Tower of Joy with Oberyn and kicked Rhaegar and Lyanna out of her home country.

Personally, i like better the theory that has Elia being complicit with the relationship. It wouldn't be out of place for a dornishwoman and it feels far more empowering than having her just be a helpless spectator

I think so.  As long as they don't find out that Aeys disinherited Rhaegar's family.  The Martells have a vested interest in keeping the Targaryens in power.   So what if Rhaegar wanted to get some jollies on the side.  Any issue from that liaison is a bastard at best and has nothing to threaten Aegon's rights.
