DS9 as a "Tower of Babel"

With DS9's official Twentieth Anniversary nearly upon us (it actually started production in the summer of 1992), I've been digging out all the books about it I have.

I was reading in the Making of Deep Space Nine that an original story idea the writers had was to make the origin of the station a mystery (no Cardassians or Bajorans) and that it had been controlled by several races before Starfleet arrived.

The writers made the right choice by setting the series near Bajor on a Cardassian station, but do you think the "Tower of Babel" idea would have been an interesting alternative?
