Isn't that part of what Starfleet Captains do? Maxwell's only true offense was violating Starfleet's direct orders, once he was given them. We saw all the hero Captains act unilaterally, proven correct (eventually) Maxwell would have been exonerated of the majority of the charges against him.
A new combat command would be likely.
Actually violating Cardassian territorial sovereignty...not cool.
