We actually did see a bit of this with O'Brien in "Cardassians", if I remember correctly. It was the episode with the young Cardassian boy adopted by Bajorans, who then bit Garak.
I do agree with you that a cast of the likes of DS9 would probably make Star Trek more interesting. They don't have to be too extreme, but fitting with the back stories of their character.
