I agree with FallingRain22, yet both sides, Balance or Forgiveness, both make sense.  Forgiveness and Balance are both also needed for peace and harmony! :)

I believe her cutie mark is magical balance due to the yin yang shape of the red and yellow in the center. Yin yang is a chinese representation of balance. Not to mention with Sunset added to the group, balance between races has been restored - 2 unicorns, 2 pegasi, 2 earth ponies, 1 alicorn ( a mixture of all the races). 

My personal headcanon is that she is the Element of Balance, or in other words, the Element of Harmony. She's like the tree in a way, connecting and holding all the other Elements together. That's just my headcanon though so pay no mind to my insanity XD

Well, FallingRain22, You missed on important thing about yin-yang symbol. It has dots in opossite colors(white in black part and vice versa), what mean some godness in evil and some evil in goodness. But in Sunsets cutie mart we have two SEPARATE parts. It could refer to godness and evil but definitely not as balance between them(which would be ridiculus there's no such think like balance between god and evil. Evil is just lack of good. Like cold is lack of heat and darkness is lack of light - it doesn't exist from itself it's just our way to describe lack of something), rather in such way as transition between goodness and evilness. To be more exactly conversion from being bad to being good, its prophecy of her conversion/reformation.
And also it could refer to double-meaning element. Well we already have such element. Because the Element of Magic mean at the same time "Element of Friendship"(what's quite logical in world where friendship is magic), therefore Sunset has Seventh Element - Element of Forgiveness/Conversion(unfortunetely English term doesn't fully fit the meaning which I'm thinking about, because it doesn't fully reflect polish world "Nawrócenie", orginally used in this theory, perhaps "Redemption" is here better option I'm not sure, but i definitely wouldn't use term "Reformation"(because its related to protestants)). Why such double meaning? Because conversion and forgiveness are like two sides of the same coin. After conversion there come also forgiveness, and in some cases forgiveness can cause conversion/redemption. Sunset's story shows it very well. This is the reason i think she is this "Seventh Element", Element of Forgiveness/Conversion(Redemption?). But this element is very unique, and as the only can work alone and other elements don't need it to work. And is double coloured(as the only on) - it's exactly a crystal version of her cutie mark(i mean this is double-color Element)
And well i also think, that she became alicorn when she transformed to Daydream Shimmer during Friendship Games(what was announcet in "My past is not Today"), so she doesn't "restore balance between races". But of course it's just a theory(but I must admit that this part about Sunset being alicorn i see as very propable).
You theory also seem to be quite good, despite this small inaccuracy with yin-yang symbol(but well in symbols details are important, so this suggest my theory can be truer).

Applejack, element of honesty!
Fluttershy, element of kindness!
Pinkie Pie, element of laughter!
Rarity, element of generosity!
Rainbow Dash, element of loyalty!
Twilight Sparkle, element of magic!
Spike, element of BRUTAL honesty!
And Sunset Shimmer, element of- wait, ketchup and mustard? (I'm referring to the react on RR)

I dunno if she should represent the element of forgiveness. The Mane 6's elements of harmony represent what their own strengths are. There is no canon evidence that Sunset forgives easily. The Mane 6 forgave her.

Part of her overarching chatacter, and you can especially see that in Rainbow Rocks and "My Past is Not Today" Is Sunset learning to forgive herself for her past mistakes. At least that was my take on it.

Especially because part of it is learning to forgive herself, you can see her ripping on herself during rainbow rocks(Band practice and the scene with Twilight in the kitchen)
