With regards to point 2, I'll just say that, as with the Maquis, I'd find it a lot more relevant if the movie wasn't set in a universe where relocating 600 people is a hell of a lot easier for all parties concerned than it would be, say, on Earth in the present.

I'm not sure I understand your point. I don't think the issue was the difficulty or logistics of relocation in either case. The Baku would have simply been unwilling to relocate because it would have meant an end to their lifestyle, and the Maquis because of ideological objections and their perceived connection to the land.
I think that was my cold talking...I seem to have blanked on the whole point of why that particular planet was the one that mattered.
