Faction members can be killed with no loss of reputation, as long as its a successful sneak attack and you manage to get away with nobody suspecting you. If faction members see you putting on clothes of their faction, or walk into or near their holdout with enemy faction clothing, they'll become hostile.
If you perform enough tasks for a faction, you may acquire a special title, which has its own benefits and penalties. For example, if you perform enough missions for a crime family, you can become a Made Man of that family. You wouldn't be allowed near any other crime families' comphounds and some townsfolk might be afraid of you, even if you have very good karma.
