As for the big revelation that humanity had a hand in the Borg's birth, yeah that's something that needs to be locked down big time. Otherwise there's going to be a lot of pissed off races going for humans.
No. Secrets and lies are the things that created the Borg in the first place. The last thing the Federation and Earth need to do is try to cover it all up.
Actually, I'd think the last thing the Federation - Earth, in particular - would need, is for hundreds or even thousands of Borg-victimized races to come banging on their front door looking for revenge. (You think Andorians, for example, would be all that happy about learning that a fellow member of the Federation was indirectly responsible for what happened to them?) If it takes a few secrets to stop that from happening, I'd call it even.
I think the Andorians are mature enough as a society to know better than to blame an entire species, and a loyal ally and partner in the Federation, for the actions of a few isolated individuals in the distant past.

And I also think that a secret that big cannot possibly be kept. And when the genie gets let out of that bag, the consequences will just be even worse. Better to be upfront and honest with everyone about the whole deal.
