The Federation agreed not to use something they wouldn't use anyway in return for a peace. That seems like a fair trade to me.
Yeah this. Or a variation of this. Perhaps both parties gave up something neither were going to use anyway, with the other unaware. Both ambassadors laughed their way back to their respective homeworlds.
Stealth/cloak is a major strategic/tactical advantage in both war and cold war - even if it's far from perfect: witness today's stealth technology.

Not using it when the other side has the technology is equivalent to suicide AKA stupidity.
