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.
You assume that Eddington was Maquis before he stole the industrial replicators, but we don't know that he was. Just because he was unlikeable doesn't mean he was Maquis.
