What, you think that if Dave tackled the Borg, they wouldn't be truly scary?
As for them needing to lay dormant, I have the same response to that as to the argument that filmed/televised Star Trek
needs to remain dormant for a long time and the new movie is a bad idea. I think that, no matter how long or short the interval between stories, all it takes is one story done right to undo the perceived "damage."
Is it really so awful for the readers to say - "hey it's a big universe and I'd like some of the books featured the characters I enjoy reading about facing something else, a different foe".
Yes it could be a great but the simple truth is - I just don't want to read about the borg anymore - not for a while. If it was just your book (after the previous two being borg stories as well) then maybe but then onto another book? and maybe another two after that?
The borg will be in the last five TNG books in a row, I like cheesecake but I don't want to eat it every day.
