What a waste of an interesting story. I never knew that they planned to have Kira and Odo go find the cure together; that really would have been a fascinating confrontation.
I never knew that either. It would have been a very different Section 31 story, sending two non-Starfleet people. I'm not sure how that would have turned out, but it definitely changes the dynamic since Section 31 couldn't use the usual excuse of "we're all Starfleet here, just let us do our work."
Storytelling aside, it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to send Bajoran Militia to Section 31 headquarters in search of assistance, rather than sending Starfleet officers. Unless the idea was that they're actually breaking in, which would have been awesome
