I seem to remember watching an interview somewhere that basically Dukat hooking up with Kira's mom was a poke at Nana Visitor's dislike of Marc Aliamo and her blatant refusal to do a romantic scene with him.
I think it was more that, at one point, due to their onscreen chemistry, the writers were thinking of having Kira and Dukat hook up. You can tell they are thinking about going there in season 4 or thereabouts. But Visitor hated the idea, not because of Alaimo, but because of Dukat.
I do think she also talked about how she got into character for Kira, and Kira loathed Dukat so much, that she had a hard time being civil to Alaimo (while in character). Something like that.
