Especially in the artwork/sound video, there seems to be more detail in the new Dominion map. Would that change the minimum graphic requirements?

If its optimized well, it shouldn't effect those things. Good design should have the ability to limit effects to reduce the stress on a system. Chances are people with lower end computers can play with particle effects turned down, which tends to be some of the biggest computer eating areas that sucks up performance.

I have a crappy integrated card on my laptop that can run low settings pretty well, but I doubt it can take much more

Most likely it will be fine. A lot of what your thinking is graphics heavy isn't actually going to effect the system much. A lot of that artwork areas are static, meaning they constantly play the same effects. As such, they don't need to dynamically adjust shows and lighting and other aspects on that background and it takes less resources then you expect.

We've done a lot of optimization to make sure that the min-spec performance doesn't move on the map. In fact, due to general optimizations you should actually see your load times and performance on Summoner's Rift improve when Dominion gets launched.
