Pardon my French, but I really don't fucking CARE what the crew of the Bok'Nor were smuggling. They did not deserve to die.
Although in the Maquis' eyes, the fact that it was a Cardassian crew probably made all the difference...
As for Eddington: Why should we not assume that he was Maquis from the get-go? He certainly acted like it.
