Maybe there were some issues in the Federation Charter that the Denobulan government didn't agree with, so they held off on joining up right away.
Given what we've seen in future shows, like TNG and DS9 for example, the Federation becomes entirely based on human values...

take genetic modification for example... which is outlawed by the Federation, even though Denobulans used it for centuries before they even met humans...

Or it could be that the strictly human basis for ideals and such, was at conflict with the obviously polyamorous nature of the Denobulan society... even Trip had a tough time getting his head around that, and if the Federation is based as much on human society, ideals, and laws as it seems to be in future shows, then i doubt the Denobulans would be very comfortable there...

In Russia, a 122 year old man has passed away, he credited his long life to abtaining from alcohol, tobacco and women. His last words were "I've made a huge mistake."
